Temporary closure of Ian Macdonald Boulevard extended

To complete the remediation work on Ian Macdonald Boulevard and to ensure that this work is performed in a safe and efficient manner, it will be necessary to extend the temporary closure from Thompson Road to Founders Road until 6am on Wednesday, May 8.

How will this impact the York community? The impact on the York Community will remain the same.

1. TTC buses that normally travel this section of Ian Macdonald will be rerouted to the University Common, where alternative stops will be set up. Notices will be posted at all affected stops in advance of this initiative.
2. Vehicular traffic will be redirected via Steeles Avenue East.
3. Emergency and service vehicle access will be made available via Ottawa Road.
4. Access to the parking lot of the West Office Building will be maintained.
5. Pedestrian access will not be impacted by this closure.
