Pottery Road Has Re-opened to Traffic

Pottery Road, from Bayview Avenue to Broadview Avenue, has re-opened.

To answer local residents’ questions about the construction on Pottery Road, I have been holding public update meetings starting October  28th  with the City of Toronto’s Technical Services Division, the department responsible for the reconstruction of Pottery Road.

The final work on the Pottery Road construction project (the reinforcement of the slope on the north side of Pottery Road) is scheduled to be completed by Wednesday, November 30.  At that time, the road is scheduled to re-open to traffic.

These meetings will provide you with an opportunity to learn how the Pottery Road project is progressing and to ask questions about it.

Where:     meet at Dairy Queen, 1040 Broadview Avenue (at Pottery Road)

When:        Friday, October 28th,  8:30 am

And every other week until construction ends – 8:30 am on Thursday, November 10th and Friday,  November 25th

 

Please note that, as well, at my request, the Public Works and Infrastructure Committee, the committee of City Council that oversees major infrastructure projects directed the Executive Director, Technical Services to report on the reconstruction of Pottery Road so we can work to making sure this sort of thing might be prevented in the future.

October 13th Update  from Technical Services

Please be advised that the October 13th update, from Technical Services,  on Pottery Road is as follows:

The final work on the Pottery Road construction project, the reinforcement of the slope on the north side of Pottery Road and the final layer of asphalt on the road, is scheduled to be completed by Wednesday, November 30.  At that time, the road is scheduled to re-open to traffic.

The City’s engineering consultant reviewed various alternatives and construction methodologies to increase the safety of the slope and have determined the most cost effective method possible to do this work.  City staff has worked closely with the local Councillor to ensure that the work will be completed as quickly and safely as possible.

We understand the impact the extended road closure continues to have on the community and the public’s desire to have this work completed as soon as possible.  Unfortunately, as has occurred in this project, construction work can be unpredictable and unforeseen circumstances can result in delays.  It has always been our intention to open the road as soon as the work at the site meets our standards and specifications and the road is safe for the travelling public.

It was originally planned that the road would be re-opened to traffic on September 5.  Work performed at the site includes road reconstruction, curbs, guiderails and retaining walls on Pottery Road, a new sidewalk, watermain replacement, storm water upgrades, improvements to the Lower Don bike trail crossing at Pottery Road and the relocation of various utilities.
