May 10, 2016 – A new report suggests the Canada’s largest city should look to 24-hour road construction to speed up projects and save money.

According to an article from The Globe and Mail, the report suggests that work could be done 10-20 per cent cheaper and up to 50 per cent faster if the city moved to 24/7 construction.

This year is expected to be one of the busiest for road construction for Toronto, as several projects from 2015 were deferred to 2016 due to the Pan-Am Games.

Currently, the city has plans for extended hours on 36 of its 85 road and water construction projects, with some of those scheduled to run 24 hours a day.
