The Finch West LRT project has been quiet lately - I hope it has not been delayed

"You can find the latest updates on the progress of the Finch West LRT on the Infrastructure Ontario website at http://www.infrastructureontario.ca/Finch-West-Light-Rail-Transit/

Following are a few highlights:

- The Request for Proposals for the design, construction, financing, and maintenance of the Finch West LRT was released by Infrastructure Ontario (IO) and Metrolinx on Feb 20, 2016
- The contract should be awarded any time now
- Major construction is scheduled to start some time in mid-2017, however; some preliminary work (e.g., relocation of utilities) has already begun
- The LRT is expected to be complete in 2021
