Traffic delays on Arboretum Lane Jan. 17

Construction sign

A Caisson drilling rig will be delivered to the new engineering building construction site on Friday, Jan. 17, in preparation for foundation work to begin on Jan. 20. To minimize inconvenience to the community, the delivery has been scheduled to take place between 8 and 10am.

Arboretum Lane will remain open during the delivery; however, due to the size of the truck involved and the maneuvering to get the rig into the site, traffic delays can be expected.

Toronto Police, York Security, Parking staff and the contractor who will be preforming the work will all be on hand to direct vehicle and pedestrian traffic safely around the site.

Drivers who normally use Arboretum Lane for pick-up and drop-off purposes should use the traffic circle west of Calumet College as an alternative.

When travelling throughout the construction zone, watch for and obey all traffic signs and traffic control personnel.

For any questions or concerns regarding this initiative, contact Theodore Arvanitis, CSBO project coordinator, at or 416 984-8976.
