Map of work that will take place on Severn Road

Due to necessary repairs to York University’s utility infrastructure, Severn Road, north of the York diesel fill station, will be partially blocked by a trailer mounted crane. This work is to accommodate the re-installation of Cooling Tower #4 South Gearbox. The work is scheduled to begin on Tuesday, April 15 at 8:30am and will end at 8pm.

How will this impact the York Community?

  • We ask that all vehicle and pedestrian traffic to be reduced to a minimum.
  • Some noise and vibration in the immediate area can be expected.
  • The contractor performing the work will be available at all times to assist with vehicle and pedestrian movement around the site when necessary.

Additional bulletins will be distributed, as the impact on the campus or the status of the project changes.
