The corridor is mostly urbanized and
there are generally limited opportunities
to provide storm water management for
runoff associated with the Transit
Project. It may not be possible to meet
level 1 quality treatment as defined in
MOE’s Stormwater Management
Planning and Design Manual at all
locations (i.e. station locations) although
MOE has indicated it believes that the
implementing the best measures that are
feasible in such locations is satisfactory.

The Ladies’ Golf Club will be provided
with a permanent access of similar
characteristics to the existing access
approximately 20 metres south of the
proposed East Don River Bridge.
Furthermore, it is anticipated that the
proposed East Don River crossing will
affect an existing pedestrian access to
Cricklewood Park off the east side of
Yonge Street. The park is situated north
of the Toronto Ladies’s Golf Club
fronting Yonge Street. To mitigate the
effect, the bridge will be designed such
that pedestrian access to the park off
Yonge Street will be provided.

These levels are higher than the
MOE/TTC Protocol criteria and are
expected to be noticeably higher than
traffic noise on Yonge Street
especially for the golf course as
traffic noise on Yonge Street will be
lower due to its lower grade
elevations. At night, public
perception is also expected to be
significant when vehicular traffic
noise is reduced.
The above listed sound levels are higher
than the MOE/TTC Protocol criteria
(with the exception of the Totally
Enclosed Viaduct option where
compliance is predicted within the
applicable criteria) and are expected to
be noticeably higher than traffic noise
on Yonge Street especially for the golf
course as traffic noise on Yonge Street
will be lower due to its lower grade
elevations. At night, public perception is
also expected to be significant when
vehicular traffic noise is reduced.
