[Received October 3, 2012]

The City of Toronto’s Parks, Forestry & Recreation Division and Cycling Infrastructure

Transportation Services in partnership with the Toronto and Region Conservation Authority (TRCA), is preparing to implement improvements as part of Phase 2 of the Marie Curtis Park Revitalization.

The proposed scope of work includes renovation of the east parking lot including the construction of a bioswale to treat and reduce storm water to protect Etobicoke Creek from the impacts of urban runoff and bike trail widening and realignment to increase usability and accessibility for cyclists and pedestrians.

The approximate limits of construction are shown in red, [in aerial photo].

Construction is tentatively scheduled to commence the week of October 8th [2012] pending the receipt of all necessary approvals, and is expected to be completed by Spring 2013.

During construction the east parking lot will be closed to store equipment and materials and to construct the bioswale.

Sections of trail and other areas of the park will also be closed throughout construction to facilitate the movement of materials and equipment, and to protect public safety from the hazards associated with the activities.

Temporary signage and fencing will be erected at appropriate locations to clearly delineate the limits of work and anticipated durations of major activities; however the public is reminded to exercise caution and stay clear of marked construction areas while the work is underway.
