Work commences on $2.2-million Bloor-Islington railway underpass upgrade

Work has begun on the $2.2-million repair and upgrade of the railway underpass on Bloor just west of Islington.

According to Mike Laidlaw, the city's acting manager of structures and expressways, "We'll be replacing the sidewalks, making general repairs to the abutments, and putting in some stairways, tying the sidewalk into the TTC commuter parking area."

The work will continue through the winter, with an expected completion in February. At the moment, two lanes in each direction are closed, though Laidlaw expects that for the majority of the construction, only one lane each way will be shut down.
