TTC replacing fences on Allen Road,
starting April 15



Update — Wednesday, January 13, 7:58 a.m.: Construction likely ended by December 31, 2015, although the TTC continued to post the detour on its website until early January.


TTC crews are replacing the chain-link fences and splash guards along the centre median of William R. Allen Road, starting Monday, April 13.

The TTC installed the fencing in 1977, when it built this section of the 1 Yonge - University subway line. The fencing safely isolates and protects subway infrastructure and separates the subway right-of-way from traffic lanes on Allen Road. The original fencing is now deteriorating.

Crews will replace the fence and posts between Yorkdale and Lawrence West stations to make sure that they remain in a state of good repair. To reduce the impact on traffic, they’ll only work overnight from 11 p.m. to 5:30 a.m. Mondays to Fridays and until 11 a.m. weekends. After 11 p.m. each night, they’ll temporarily block shoulders and traffic lanes on Allen Road. They’ll maintain at least one through lane for in each direction at all times. They’ll also maintain all access to and from Highway 401 and all on and off-ramps.

The work should not impact TTC subway service.

Work continues until December 31.
