The City of Toronto is planning several road safety improvements that will be carried out as part of upcoming road reconstruction, road resurfacing and watermain replacement work on Symes Road, Orman Avenue and Hilldale Road. Work is expected to start in 2022. Once complete, this project will improve conditions for people walking, cycling and driving. A Construction Notice with detailed information about construction will be mailed to area residents and businesses before the work begins.

Virtual Public Information Event

A Virtual Public Information Event was held on the evening of September 27, 2021. This was an opportunity for area residents to learn about the project, provide feedback and ask questions.
