Updated: Kerr Hall Quad restorations

September 12, 2018

Update: The centre of the Quad is expected to remain hoarded until late October to allow for the completion of resodding and seeding, which requires several weeks to stabilize. During this time, it is essential that people stay off the grass to avoid any damage or delays. Please continue to observe all signage in and around the area.

September 6, 2018

Update: Part of the Kerr Hall Quad has reopened to the public now that preliminary restoration work to the Recreation and Athletics Centre (RAC) drainage system is complete. The centre section will remain closed for the next four weeks to allow for grass resodding, and the northeast corner is hoarded to allow for accessibility improvements. Please observe all signage in and around the area.

July 10, 2018

Update: The Kerr Hall Quad is now closed to the public as the contractor is onsite and has begun preparing for planned work. Emergency exits from Kerr Hall and access to the RAC will be maintained at all times. Please observe all signage in and around the site.

As part of the public realm improvements, the Kerr Hall Quad will undergo a planned closure beginning in June to allow for significant and necessary restoration work to the Recreation and Athletics Centre (RAC) drainage system.

How this may impact you

During construction, access to the Quad will be restricted to project workers only. Neighbouring spaces (such as the RAC, Ryerson Theatre, Kerr Hall labs and classrooms, etc.) are expected to remain open and accessible.

Every effort will be made to reduce the negative impact of this work, however some noise and debris will be unavoidable. Signage will be posted to identify safe and accessible alternate routes where applicable.
