Roncesvalles construction

A little more than a month into the second and final round of construction, residents and shopkeepers in Roncesvalles Village are beginning to see the light at the end of the tunnel. Track work is proceeding quickly. Comments like “Wow, they’re moving fast!” are commonly heard.

Track is in place on nearly half the street, and sidewalk replacement and road repair has begun in the south end. Several blocks are open in the south end, with more opening soon.

Of course, not everyone is happy all the time.

  1. Starbuck's neighbour says:

    Obviously you don’t live in the area where they are doing the damn construction at all hours of the day - well most hours of the day. They take between 6 pm and 11 pm off. That’s right. All of the neighbours at the top of the street have not been able to sleep for the past 5 nights because of the noise levels that are out of control. We sure hope that this damn construction is done soon, because I have come to hate the workers who are extremely disrespectful and I now hate all of the city who are allowing this to happen. To be honest I don’t give a rats ass if it takes longer as long as we can sleep and that means our kids too folks. So enjoy your new road.

    Your cranky ass, sleep deprived bitch of a neighbour who hates the city and everyone who works for it.

  2. Keith Denning, Coordinator, RVBIA says:

    Actually, I live very close to the Starbucks also, so yes, my family and I have been enduring this too.

    Installing the actual track is noisy, but this is nearly finished. Pouring concrete etc. is usually done during the day and is much quieter.

    The Roncesvalles/Dundas intersection is expected to be completely open on September 7.
