Last update on February 25, 2013
Construction activities are complete. The City is currently working on an initiative to improve the efficiency of the system, which will have no impact on local residents or traffic conditions.
As part of the Wet Weather Flow Master Plan, the City of Toronto will be modifying and upgrading the storm and combined sewer system to help improve the quality of the runoff that enters Lake Ontario at Coatsworth Cut by Ashbridges Bay.
This project is an outcome of the approved Coatsworth Cut Sewershed Study Class Environmental Assessment completed in 2005.
Contract 1 - Kingston Rd. and Dundas St.
This project will involve excavation within the traffic island at Kingston Road and Dundas Street (see map on page 2 of notice) in order to construct an underground combined sewer storage tank. Construction activities in this area will begin in January 2011 and be completed by summer 2011. Download construction notice (PDF).
UPDATE: Delays caused by complications with utilities have pushed the completion date for the Kingston Rd. and Dundas Rd. work to May 2012. Thank you for your patience.

Residents near work areas are advised to delay any improvements to driveways until construction is completed.
Construction will take place according to the City’s noise by-law (Chapter 591) which allows for construction in a residential area from 7 a.m. to 7 p.m. during the business week and 9:00 a.m. to 7 p.m. on Saturdays. Any exceptions will require approval by the City.
From time to time during construction residents may experience construction noise and vibrations. There may also be incidents of dust caused by the trucks and excavation equipment.
Any related disruptions to local TTC service will be posted.
During construction, restrictions will be imposed to turning, parking and driving lanes in and around work areas. Where necessary, alternative parking arrangements will be made to assist residents with on-street parking. Advisory signs will be put in place. Efforts will be made to provide vehicle access to surrounding businesses and residence whenever possible during construction.
All areas temporarily affected by the construction activity will be restored once the work is completed. We sincerely apologize for the inconveniences caused by this necessary project. Your assistance and cooperation during the construction period is crucial and appreciated.
