Keeping Regent Park clean
We are working to keep noise and dust levels low during construction. To keep the community clean, we will be cleaning in and around construction sites daily, and street sweeping and flushing (with water) as required. We have a contract with Self Reliance Solutions, a resident-led Regent Park company, to clean public areas throughout the community every weekday.
We will provide an updated new map outlining street and sidewalk closures, areas where trucks are not allowed, the direction trucks can travel, and the locations of crossing guards and control persons who manage traffic.Current road closures include:
Oak Street (between Sumach Street and River Street)
Wyatt Avenue (between Nicholas Avenue and River Street)
Current sidewalk closures include:
St. Bartholomew Street, south side (between Regent Street and Sackville Street)
Regent Street, east side (between St. Bartholomew Street and St. David Street)
Sackville Street, east side (between St. Bartholomew Street and St. David Street)
St. David Street, north side (between Regent Street and Regent Park Boulevard)
St. David Street, south side (between entrance to TDSB parking lot and Sumach Street)
Sumach Street, west side (between St. David Street and Shuter Street)
Wyatt Avenue, north side (between Sumach Street and Tubman Avenue)
All construction sites have been fenced off and have a dedicated person responsible for regular safety checks to keep everyone safe. When trucks are entering or exiting a site, a construction worker will guide pedestrian and vehicle traffic.
No truck activity will occur south of Nelson Mandela Park Public School on Shuter Street.
During school drop-off and pick-up times construction vehicles will also be banned on St. David Street behind the school.
