Please be advised that Toronto and Region Conservation Authority (TRCA) is preparing to undertake Phase 2 of channel restoration works along Mud Creek Reach 5, which is located south of the Heath Street East Pedestrian Bridge within Moore Park Ravine. Phase 1 of the project was completed during the spring and summer of 2013.
In general, the scope of work involves installation of channel erosion control measures and improvements to the existing flow regime. The work is expected to commence during the week of January 5, 2015 with an anticipated duration of twelve (12) weeks.
Due to limited space for construction equipment and materials, and the requirement to ensure public safety, TRCA will need to close a 250 metre section of the Beltline Trail which extends from the Heath Street East Pedestrian Bridge to the downstream end of Reach 5. Trail closures will be in effect from Monday to Friday between the hours of 7:00 AM to 5:00 PM. TRCA understand the value of the trail system to the general public therefore the trail will be reopened whenever possible which at a minimum includes evenings, weekends and holidays.
Signs will be installed in the vicinity of the project site later this week to advise the public of the upcoming works and trail closures.
Please find the attached Notice of Project Commencement (NOPC) which will be distributed to properties located adjacent to the work area and along the material delivery route. We encourage you to share this NOPC with members of your organisation or anyone you feel may be interested in this project.
