The City of Toronto is modifying and upgrading the storm and sanitary sewer system in your area in order to reduce surface and basement flooding. Due to the depth and nature of the sanitary sewer construction work on Finch Avenue West and Altamont Road, the road will be closed at the intersection of Finch Avenue West and Altamont Road effective 7:00 a.m. on Monday July 10, 2023, to 7:00 p.m. on Friday July 14, 2023.
Motorists are reminded to abide by traffic/construction signs posted in locaal reas to ensure the safe travel of all local road users, pedestrians, and cyclists. This project is part of the Council-approved 2022 Basement Flooding Protection Program to improve the water distribution system; renew our aging infrastructure and reduce the risk of sewer collapse or blockages that cause sewer backups and flooding.
WHAT TO EXPECT BEFORE CONSTRUCTION
Work Hours: Work will take place from 7:00 a.m. to 7:00 p.m., Monday to Friday.
Road and Sidewalk Access: In order to complete the work in a safe manner, there will be road and sidewalk restrictions within the work zone. Access to emergency vehicles will be maintained at all times.
The intersection at Finch Avenue West and Altamont Road will be fully closed during the duration of the work. Altamont Road can be accessed from Hendon Avenue. Finch Avenue will remain open with 1 lane open in each direction from May to September 2023.
There will be detour signs in the area to provide motorists with alternate routes.
Pedestrians: Sidewalks will be kept open for pedestrian use. When work is taking
place on the sidewalk, signage will be placed to provide information about which side
of the road to use.
If you have questions about the upcoming work, please contact us and quote Contract 21ECS-LU-05FP.
Thank you for your patience. Building a great city takes time. Better infrastructure for all of us is worth the wait.
