Final landscaping of Vanier/Founders Green May 20 to 31

Final landscaping of the land used for a cross passage for the northern subway tunnels will begin Wednesday, May 20, and continue until May 31. The construction site is situated southeast of Ottawa Road and in the Vanier/Founders Green, near the Founders Residence and east of the Lumbers parking lot.

Construction work over the next two weeks will include grading and sodding of the Vanier/Founders Green. This will require a temporary closure of the pathway to the basketball court. Large construction equipment, including a bulldozer and track steer, will be used.

Work will normally run between 7am and 5pm, Monday to Friday. During the work, there will be noise from construction vehicles.

Pedestrians are asked to use the open walkways around the construction site, and to watch for and obey all signs. The pathway to the basketball court will be temporarily closed to facilitate this work. 

A project information centre is open in York Lanes across from the York University Bookstore. TTC construction liaison officers are on hand three days a week to greet visitors and share information about the project. The York Lanes office has project information and station models for the York University and Steeles West stations.
