Overnight deployment of navigational buoys

UPDATE: Due to weather-related delays, overnight buoy deployment will continue until Friday, May 5, 2017.

Toronto (April 25, 2017) – Please be advised that from Tuesday, April 25 to Friday, April 28, crews will be working overnight from 11:00 p.m. until approximately 6:00 a.m. to deploy navigational buoys around Toronto’s Harbour in preparation for the boating season.
After removal over the winter for maintenance and repair, the buoys are placed in the Harbour each spring by PortsToronto to help ensure the safe navigation of boats and ships. The buoys being deployed are located in the inner harbour, as well as to the west and east of Billy Bishop Toronto City Airport.
While the buoy deployment is taking place, passersby can expect to see a tugboat, barge and crane, needed to lift the six-tonne buoys, in the Harbour. Minimal noise is expected.
