York University Station box drilling resumes this week

On Monday, Jan. 7, caisson drilling resumed at the future York University Subway Station. This construction activity will occur in the lower excavated area (see construction zone marked on the map below) and requires the drilling of short piles by drilling rigs. This work is projected to continue for approximately five weeks between the hours of 7am and 11pm, seven days per week. During the work hours there will be construction-related noise.
