Construction Update:

Construction at the intersection of Gerrard Street East and Broadview Avenue was completed and reopened to all traffic on Sunday August 12 at 7 a.m. 

Local Access Notices will no longer be needed, and signs and traffic controls will be removed.

Work finished early because of favourable weather and the condition of infrastructure located beneath the Broadview-Gerrard intersection. Due to this, crews were able to complete the track replacement and repair work within a shorter time-frame than previously planned.

Revised Construction Schedule

The City of Toronto’s work to replace watermains, the City-owned portion of water services and rehabilitate the road on Jarvis Street from Queen Street East to Dundas Street East has been progressing.

During construction, the City of Toronto identified an opportunity to include larger water services that would extend farther into property lines to improve the quality of water service along Jarvis Street. The water service is the underground pipe that brings water to your water meter and is owned by you and by the City. The privately-owned part is from your building to the end of your property, the part the City owns is from the end of the property to the watermain.

As a result of the revised scope of work, the completion of this project has been revised and extended into December. Please view the Construction Update for more details.

The City will also be reconstructing and resurfacing the road along the same section. This is to reconstruct the road and replace sections of damaged curb and sidewalk to bring them to a state of good repair.

This project is part of the Council-approved 2018 Capital Works Program to renew our aging infrastructure, improve water distribution, reduce the risk of watermain breaks, and renew aging city roads and sidewalk for current and future needs.
