Impact on vehicle traffic and pedestrains
For Walkley Road, there will be some lane closures during the construction of bridge deck rehabilitation. At least one eastbound and one westbound lane will be maintained at all times. For Southeast Transitway, Short duration closures will be required in order to permit repairs to the bridge desk soffit and construction of new concrete columns. At least one northbound and one southbound lane will be maintained at all times. Pedestrian access on Walkley Road and the Southeast Transitway level will be maintained. The two transit towers on the south side of Walkley Road will be closed during the construction.
Lischer Construction Inc. is assuming full responsibility for the construction work until it is entirely completed in 2016. They will take every precaution to minimize interruptions to the everyday life of your family and/or operation of your business, but as you can appreciate, there may be some inconvenience during the course of the operation of the work, such as increased traffic, noise, dust and vibration. We would like to thank you for your patience and co-operation.
You may feel vibrations at your home or business due to the use of the heavy equipment needed to complete this work. This is quite common and not usually a problem.
