Retaining Wall Construction – 20 & 54 Davis Drive

Construction of a retaining wall has started at 20 and 54 Davis Drive, the Goodwill plaza just east of Yonge Street.

When will this start?

Crews are on site and have started excavating. Work is scheduled from May 30 to early September, 2011.*

What will this work look like?

Work will include removing existing asphalt and/or curb, excavating earth and building the retaining walls. Once the walls are built, a handrail will be installed and the surrounding area will be restored.

Note: Access to the plaza from Davis Drive will be maintained.

What will the wall be made of?

The wall is being built using stone blocks. The height of the wall at its maximum is approximately 1.1 m (3.6 ft), and walls measuring 0.6 m (2 ft) or more in height will have a handrail installed.

Will sidewalks in the work area be impacted?

The sidewalk will be detoured at times, and in these cases flag personnel will guide pedestrians. If the sidewalk needs to be closed, pedestrians will be directed to the sidewalk on the north side of Davis Drive.

Will there be traffic impacts on Davis Drive?

From time to time there may be temporary lane closures to facilitate the work. Any lane closures will follow permit guidelines and roadways will be clearly signed.
