With more street closures coming to the Union Station area as a result of construction, the daily gridlock won’t let up in 2013.
Bad news, commuters. The daily gridlock plugging up the area around Union Station is going to get much worse before it gets better.
Multiple street closures were listed in a news release from the City today due to the ongoing construction at Union Station and the PATH network. The most notable closure will be the stretch of Front Street just east of York Street, which “will be closed in both directions from January to October 2013.” Motorists will be able to access the Fairmont Royal York by traveling westbound from Bay Street, then making a U-turn and heading back east.
As well, one block of York Street (between Front and Piper) will be closed both directions for the entirety of 2013. Pedestrian access to most streets will be maintained, the City says.
This is probably a good place to mention the multitude of Bixi stations across the downtown core.
