The City of Toronto will be replacing the watermains, sanitary and storm sewers on Edenbridge Drive. This project will include replacing the City-owned portion of any substandard water services and sanitary service laterals. This work will improve the water distribution system and area sanitary and storm drainage systems.
This project will also involve road reconstruction, resurfacing and new sidewalk to ensure Edenbridge Drive continues to operate safely and efficiently.
This work will take place on Edenbridge Drive from Bearwood Drive to Scarlett Road.
Public Drop-in Event
On January 31, 2012 the City hosted a public event at the The Edenbridge Centre. About 20 neighbours attended. Participants learned more about this project, reviewed design drawings and spoke directly with project staff. All materials from the event are now available online below:
- Roadway alignment from North Drive to 196 Edenbridge Dr.
Option 1 received a favourable response from local property owners and will be carried forward.
The construction work will result in:
- Replacement of storm sewer, sanitary sewer and services. Replacement of watermain and water services where required between Knoll Dr. and North Dr.
- Full pavement replacement from North Dr. to Knoll Dr. Pavement rehabilitation from Knoll Dr. to Scarlett Rd.
- Minor realignment of Edenbridge Dr. from North Dr. to south of Erinbrook Ct.
- New curb and gutter for the west side from North Dr. to south of Erinbrook Ct.
- Replacement of the existing curb with new curb and gutter on the east side of Edenbridge Dr.
- New sidewalk on the east side from north of Bearwood Dr. (at James Gardens) to tie into the existing sidewalk south of Erinbrook Ct.
- Repair of existing sidewalks where required
- End of driveway repairs where required
- 5 to 7 boulevard trees will be removed
- Boulevard improvements including grass and new street trees
This project is part of the Etobicoke York District Technical Services 2012 Capital Works program and is necessary to improve the reliability of the water distribution system and the quality of your drinking water.
Completion of Sidewalk Network
As part of the construction work a new concrete sidewalk will be built to join the existing asphalt walkway in James Gardens to the sidewalk on the east side of Edenbridge Drive. The City also intends to extend the Edenbridge sidewalk to the parking lot at Scarlett Mills Park across from Knoll Drive.
Disruptions During Construction
In order to complete the sewer, watermain and road reconstruction work in a safe manner, it will be necessary to close Edenbridge Drive to all through traffic. Access for local residents and emergency vehicles will be maintained; although access to driveways will be interrupted from time to time during construction. The contractor is obligated to notify residents and businesses of any temporary driveway closures. The City will make arrangements for parking on side streets at times when driveway access has been interrupted. During water service replacement, water supply will be occasionally interrupted with 24 hour written notice given by the contractor.
Many people have planted landscaping, fences, irrigation systems or other physical features in front of their home which are within the City property limits. These may be in the way of the construction. In such cases, residents are advised to remove these items prior to the beginning of construction in order to avoid unnecessary damage. The City will not be responsible for damage to any privately owned items installed on the City’s property.
Before construction starts, a notice will be issued detailing which streets are available for parking as well as construction timing and name of the contractor. Your co-operation and patience during the construction period is crucial and appreciated.
