Construction Update from Waterfront Toronto on the construction for the Jack Layton Ferry Terminal and Harbour Square Park Phase 1A
Construction remains on track with schedules that were distributed to stakeholders earlier this month. The western walkway will likely be closed before the end of October in order to install the widened walkway. Full closure of the main walkway is expected in early- to mid-November.
The City of Toronto is currently on site removing small items including park furnishings, planters, flag poles and pavers. As part of installing the new pedestrian promenade and the widened western walkway, the City will be removing 15 trees that are directly affected. These trees will be replaced by 16 new trees that will be planted using soil cell technology that will help ensure the new trees grow in healthy and strong.
Below is a map that identifies each tree that will be removed as part of Phase 1A construction and a description of why it’s being removed. This work will begin within the next week.
A Stakeholder Advisory Committee meeting will be planned in the coming weeks where a detailed construction schedule will be reviewed.
