Billy Bishop Airport to Begin Reconstruction of Eireann Quay Roadway

(Toronto, June 29, 2020) – The third phase of a PortsToronto project to improve vehicle and pedestrian circulation on Eireann Quay is scheduled to commence in the coming days. This phase will focus on a full reconstruction of the Eireann Quay roadway and a widening of its east sidewalk. Work, which will last approximately four weeks, will take place weekdays between 7:00 a.m. and 7:00 p.m. Throughout this final phase of the project, vehicle traffic will proceed through the airport finger lot, and pedestrians will be redirected to the west sidewalk.
This project, which began in April 2020, includes the completed reconstruction of the airport finger lot and the west sidewalks bordering Eireann Quay, as well as the relocation and improvement of an existing surface parking lot on the Canada Malting site, which features a new student pick up/drop off area at the Toronto District School Board (TDSB) Waterfront School.
PortsToronto’s improvement of passenger and vehicle traffic operations at Billy Bishop Airport is part of the multi-partner, multi-phase Bathurst Quay Neighbourhood Plan (BQNP) being led by the City of Toronto. Among other improvements, the BQNP will improve pedestrian experience and comfort in the vicinity of the airport and improve the public realm for the enjoyment of both the community and travellers.
