Origin

(November 27, 2017) Report from the Acting Director, Transportation Services, Toronto and East York District

Summary

As the Toronto Transit Commission (TTC) operates a transit service on Davenport Road, City Council approval of this report is required.

 

Clark Construction Management is constructing a 9-storey condominium building at 128 Hazelton Avenue. The site is located in the south-west corner of Davenport Road and Hazelton Avenue.

 

Transportation Services is requesting approval to close the sidewalk and a portion of the eastbound lane on the south side of Davenport Road for a covered pedestrian walkway for a period of 12 months to accommodate construction staging operations.  The developer originally requested a closure for 25 months but Transportation Services is seeking authority for 12 months at this time.  Staff will review the need to extend the duration of the construction staging area and seek authority from City Council if necessary.

 

All of the existing vehicular traffic and bike lanes will be maintained during construction.  Pedestrian operations on Davenport Road abutting the site will be maintained in a covered and protected walkway within the closed portion of the eastbound curb lane.

 

The west sidewalk and a portion of the northbound lane on Hazelton Avenue also needs to be closed to accommodate the construction staging area for the development. However, this matter is dealt through a companion report "Construction Staging Area - Hazelton Avenue (128 Hazelton Avenue)" requiring Toronto and East York Community Council approval.
