Temporary Road Closure: Finch Avenue West & Altamont Road

Start Date: Monday June 5, 2023

End Date: Friday June 16, 2023

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 June 5, 2023, to 7:00 p.m. on Friday June 16, 2023.

Motorists are reminded to abide by traffic/construction signs posted in local areas 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.


Work Hours: Work will take place from 7:00 a.m. to 7:00 p.m., Monday to Friday.

Traffic Management:

  • 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.
