Construction Notice No. 3 – Archives Project

Temporary Lane Restriction - Vanier Lane

All members of the York University community are advised that the installation of manholes and stormwater and sanitary pipelines in Vanier Lane for the Archives Project will commence later this week on Thursday and Friday, June 28 and 29. Completion date is anticipated to be July 16.

There should be minimal disruption to the community and pedestrian and traffic flows during this roadway restriction on Vanier Lane. The contractor will conduct reasonable hours of operation at the site, with daily work activities starting no earlier than 7:00 a.m.

The contractor for the project will take all necessary precautions to ensure community members are safe at all times. Precautionary measures include posting warning signs, use of flag persons to direct pedestrians and traffic, and scheduling certain activities at off-peak times.

  • Vanier Lane will have at least one lane open at all times, with flagmen controlling the traffic flow.
  • Both lanes of Vanier Lane will be reopened in the evenings.
  • Work near the Bookstore loading bay is scheduled to occur on the weekends of July 7-8 and July 14-15.

Please circulate this email widely within your department. Additional notifications will be circulated as required.
