Construction zone safety pilot project launches Monday in midtown

BT Toronto | posted Monday, Dec 2nd, 2019

The city is launching a pilot project on Monday, aimed at keeping traffic and workers moving efficiently through construction hotspots.

The Construction Hub Coordination pilot will begin at Yonge and Eglinton, where multiple work sites have resulted in gridlock and been blamed for a number of pedestrian fatalities.

An on-the-ground hub coordinator will review construction management plans, connect travellers with real-time information, collaborate with enforcement officers, and communicate any changes to local businesses and community members.

A similar project in Seattle is credited with saving the city more than $15 million and significantly speeding up construction days.

The pilot is set to run through 2020.
