News Release
January 16, 2015

Two northbound lanes of University Avenue, at the intersection of Elm Street, will be closed from Sunday, January 18 at 7 p.m. to Friday, February 6 for watermain construction work. In addition, westbound traffic on Elm Street will not be able to access University Avenue during the construction period.

During the closure, there will be periods of time when it appears there is no work taking place at the site. However, this is when crews will be doing such work as watermain disinfection and custom pipe work. The road will reopen when the work is complete and the road is fully restored.

This is one of the final phases of the D’Arcy Street to Gerrard Street Watermain Replacement project. The entire project is expected to be completed in October 2015.

This work is part of the City’s comprehensive and co-ordinated strategy to rehabilitate and upgrade our roads, transit and underground infrastructure for current and future needs.
