Redevelopment: Construction Updates

EllisDon is now on-site at Michael Garron Hospital (MGH) working to build the hospital’s redevelopment project. Below is a summary of construction activities currently occurring on the campus. For more information about any of the construction updates below or to sign up for regular email updates contact: @email

Parking Changes

MGH’s parking lot has moved to make way for construction of the Ken and Marilyn Thomson Patient Care Centre. Learn more about where to park during your next visit. 

Once complete, MGH’s Ken and Marilyn Thomson Patient Care Centre will have four levels of underground vehicular and bicycle parking, increasing the spots available on campus and  minimizing traffic congestion on the surrounding streets.

Construction Traffic Flow Plan

An update has been made to the construction traffic flow procedure for Michael Garron Hospital’s redevelopment project. The original plan was to minimize the number of construction vehicles that would travel east on Sammon Avenue from the hospital to Woodbine Avenue. 

The updated plan directs construction vehicles to travel both east and west on Sammon Avenue between Coxwell and Woodbine Avenues. This routing is permitted within the City of Toronto Municipal Code Chapter 950.

There are several reasons why EllisDon has modified the traffic routing for the hospital’s redevelopment project. These reasons include:

  • Some larger trucks are having challenges reversing onsite due to tight turning radiuses, making right hand turns out of the site difficult
  • Daily deliveries of equipment and supplies are currently being made onsite. Having vehicles enter/exit both east and west on Sammon Avenue helps to maintain traffic flow.

Michael Garron Hospital and EllisDon apologize for any inconvenience this change in routing may cause and certainly appreciate the community’s understanding and support as we work to build the hospital’s redeveloped campus.

If you have any questions or concerns related to this change, please contact the hospital’s redevelopment department at @email
