Construction Update Notice - McMurrich St, Frichot Av, McAlpine St, Roden Pl and Sarah St

WARD 27 CONSTRUCTION NOTICES WEBSITE

In late July 2017, the City of Toronto started the replacement of the watermain and the City-owned portion of substandard water services on McAlpine Street, McMurrich Street, Roden Place, Sarah Street and Frichot Avenue. The watermain installation work has now been completed.

In April, work crews will return to complete work on the curb, sidewalk and road restoration as well as remove old fire hydrants & old watermain valve chambers.  It was necessary for the City to wait until spring to finish the work as paving work requires consistently warmer and drier weather.

The City recognizes that a project of this nature is disruptive to the community and apologizes for any inconveniences caused by the delayed end date.

Please note the new construction dates below:
Spring Start Date: April 9, 2018
NEW End Date: May 31, 2018

*Timeline is subject to change. Future notice to be provided.
