Toronto waterfront revitalization project keeping schedule
October 2, 2013 by STAFF REPORT
The Queens Quay Revitalization project is expected to be ready by the spring of 2015 for the Pan Am Games.
The project involves a substantial overhaul, both above and below ground, of Toronto’s main waterfront area along the Queens Quay, from Lower Spadina Avenue to Bay Street.
When complete, the area will feature: a wide tree-lined granite pedestrian promenade alongside a new stretch of Martin Goodman Trail for cyclists, rebuilt TTC streetcar tracks and wider platforms, realigned traffic lanes with dedicated turning lanes and laybys for short-term parking, and new trees outside storefronts and residences on the north side of the street.
Most of the waterfront’s aging underground infrastructure is also being expanded or rebuilt, including installing a new gas main, sanitary/storm sewers, hydro chambers and ducts, and new telecommunications chambers and ducts.
