In 2023, construction crews cleared the area, relocated a watermain that went beneath the railway, and shifted the existing train tracks.  This work was completed to prepare the site for the start of bridge construction.

The tracks needed to be shifted because the Ontario Line will run alongside GO Trains in the shared rail corridor in the area. Shifting the tracks makes it possible for continued GO service during Ontario Line construction and makes space for new Ontario Line tracks.
