Cooksville GO Station Redevelopment: Summer Update

June 19, 2018 4:35 pm

Work is in full swing at the Cooksville GO station and the brand new parking structure is beginning to take shape.

We will continue to make progress through the summer months. This is what we have planned:

  • Utility Connections at the Hurontario & John Street Intersection – In order to connect water to the new station we will temporarily close some parking spots on the east side of the site. More information will be provided closer to the date.
  • Precast Concrete Deliveries – To maintain traffic flow and prevent delays on Hillcrest Avenue, and to reduce truck idle times, delivery of precast concrete for the parking structure may start as early as 6:00 a.m. Following coordinated delivery schedules, trucks will enter and exit the site as quickly as possible, without having to reverse (avoiding back-up alarms unless absolutely necessary). This work will begin in late May.
  • Hydro Duct Bank Installation – This duct bank, running from Hurontario along the north side of Hillcrest Avenue, is necessary to bring additional power to the Cooksville GO Station site. Lane closures at the GO Access Road are anticipated during this work.

PREPARING FOR SUMMER WEATHER CONDITIONS

Dry and hot summer weather can often mean more dust on construction sites. Our dust management plan includes:

  • Monitoring the wind direction each day and adjusting construction methods as necessary.
  • Using dust monitors to raise an alert when there is excess dust at key locations on the site, to mitigate before it becomes a problem.
  • Watering down the site regularly to suppress dust.
  • Sweeping the streets around the site daily to keep the area as clean as possible.

WHAT DOES THIS MEAN FOR YOU?

We expect this work to have minimal impact to residents and adjacent properties. Work will happen during the day between 7:00 a.m. and 8:00 p.m. with occasional weekends as required. Notice will be circulated for impacts of any major work in the future. Thank you for your patience as we build transit to connect our communities.
