Overnight work on York/Bay/Yonge ramp demolition to cease

Some relief for residents who live near Lower Simcoe, where demolition of a Gardiner Expressway off-ramp has been going round-the-clock.

Mayor John Tory says this weekend’s work on the York/Bay/Yonge ramp is ahead of schedule and as such, the contractor will be suspending overnight operations.

Tory tweeted out, the work will commence again at 7 a.m. Sunday morning and he’s hopeful the work done this weekend will limit how much late night and evening work takes place during the week.

Typically, construction work is limited to between 7 a.m. and 7 p.m. on weekdays, and 9 a.m. to 7 p.m. on Saturdays.

Residents in the area were not happy with the all-night noise, taking to twitter to voice their displeasure.

“Between noise, vibrations through walls + floor, and a scared puppy, #nosleep was had in our household. Thx for nothing @JohnTory”

“Residents complaining about noise, commuters dealing with chaos. Only developers are happy with @JohnTory”
