Archaeology – Lakeshore East Joint Corridor

← Return to Early Works: Lakeshore East Joint Corridor

Key Findings

  • Most of the study area has been cleared of archaeological concerns.
  • Areas that retain moderate to high archaeological potential are located north of Eastern Avenue near Lewis Street, along the rail corridor between Dundas Street East and Queen Street East, adjacent to Logan Avenue, and between Riverdale Avenue and Langley Avenue.
  • Where archaeological potential is present and disturbance is anticipated, further archaeological assessment(s) will be completed prior to construction. The assessment(s) may include test pit surveys and deeply buried investigative techniques, such as mechanical topsoil removal, mechanical trenching, and/or construction monitoring.

Potential Effects & Mitigation Measures

Potential Effects:

  • Potential for disturbance of shallow and deeply buried archaeological resources due to Lakeshore East Joint Corridor early works activities.

Mitigation Measures:

  • Complete additional archaeological assessment(s) where required as early as possible and in advance of any ground disturbance.
  • If archaeological materials are encountered (or suspected) during early works activities, all work will stop. The site will be protected from impact and additional assessment will be undertaken.
