Dupont Street Bridge

Road Closures: December 15 (Overnight) and 17-19

Project Description
The Dupont Street bridge currently has five tracks. As part of the GTS Project, a new bridge span will be installed between the existing GO tracks and the West Toronto Rail Path bridge to accommodate one additional track. The work will involve modifying the existing concrete abutments, constructing a new steel pier, and installing the new steel beam span.

Road closures for installation of the new span

  • Closure of Dupont Street between Osler Street and Dundas Street West
  • December 15, 2010 – Overnight Road Closure

  • Construction of the new pier will begin Wednesday at 9 p.m. and be completed by Thursday 6 a.m. when the road will re-open
  • December 17-19, 2010 – Road Closure

  • Staging work will begin Friday at 9 p.m. and continue overnight, with the installation of the span beginning Saturday morning through to Sunday at 10 p.m.

How will this impact you?

  • This is routine construction work, with regular construction noise from trucks, cranes, construction equipment and little to no vibration impact anticipated
  • Pedestrian access will be maintained at all times, on one or the other side of the street
  • Prior to the weekend road closure, bike lanes on both sides of the road will be closed for 1 day for preparatory work
  • The West Toronto Railpath will have reduced access
  • There will be some additional work after the span is installed
  • This work will include standard site clean up and should have minimal impact on traffic or the community
