Sewer Upgrades: Waterloo Avenue between Maxwell Street and Elder Street

The City of Toronto is modifying and upgrading the storm and sanitary sewer system in your area in order to reduce surface and basement flooding.

Due to the depth and nature of the storm sewer construction work on Waterloo Avenue, the road will be closed between Maxwell Street and Elder Street, effective 7 a.m. on Monday, May 25, 2020 to 7 p.m. on Friday, May 29, 2020. Please note that the intersection of Hove Street and Codsell Avenue is closed until May 22, 2020 and the intersection of Waterloo Avenue and Bryant Street is closed until May 29, 2020.

Motorists are reminded to abide by traffic/construction signs posted in local areas to ensure the safe travel of all local road users, pedestrians and cyclists. This project is part of the Council-approved 2020 Basement Flooding Protection Program to improve the water distribution system; renew our aging infrastructure and reduce the risk of sewer collapse or blockages that cause sewer backups and flooding.
