I hope this message finds you and your family well and that you are enjoying these last warm days of summer.
Especially at this time of year, it is important to remind ourselves to stay safe while driving our children to school. You may have noticed “Slow Down Signs” on the lawns near schools. These serve to remind passing motorists that they are in a school zone and must slow down. If you would like a “Slow Down Sign” delivered to your home for use on your lawn, please click here.
Please see the following update from the City of Toronto regarding the Steeles Avenue East Bridge:
As communicated this past summer, the Steeles Avenue East Bridge Environmental Assessment has now been completed. While City of Toronto staff continues to work with Metrolinx to coordinate the implementation phase, Metrolinx will be leading the design and construction of this project.
Construction is anticipated to occur between 2018 and 2021. There are no specific dates at this time.
The community will receive regular updates about the project from the Councillor’s office, the City and Metrolinx.
If you are interested in learning more about other area projects, the Finch Avenue East Grade Separation and the Finch SmartTrack Station are planning public consultations later this year. Dates are still to be determined. For more information, please visit www.smarttrack.to.
