Excavation of the central river valley is now complete; you can where the future riverbanks will be. The new river valley will be on average 100 metres wide. It will cut a kilometre-long path along Don Roadway and west across Cherry Street, ending in a new, renaturalized river mouth. Cousins Quay is being used to store construction materials, but in 2024, this concrete space will be a beautiful park bordering the mouth of the Don River. You can see the naturalized shoreline along the Cherry Street Lake Filling Project and the Cherry Street North Bridge. You can also see where we’ve started piling reused soil where parks will line the river valley and the water treatment plant where water from the excavation is treated and returned to Lake Ontario.
