The intersection of York and Ridout will be reopened tonight at approximately 6pm. Motorists and cyclists will be able to travel north and south through the intersection.
It is a milestone market for the downtown project, as it marks the completion of Stage 2 and the beginning of Stage 3 of the York Street core infrastructure renewal project.
The York Street construction zone will now be shifted east, closing York Street from 57 York to the west side of Talbot Street.
During this time, traffic coming in from the west on York can travel through the intersection to access buildings and parking garages as far east as 57 York Street. Those coming in from the east will not be able to access the intersection and will be diverted at Talbot. Queens Avenue or Horton Street can be considered as alternate routes.
The travelling public can expect periodic lane reductions next week at the Ridout and York intersection as crews complete the finishing touches on sidewalks.
