Updated: Utilities Work November 25 – December 3
GFL, the contractors for the utilities work, have been given a permit by the City of Toronto to work 24 hours per day from November 11 through December 1 (and possibly till December 3) as they dig out Queens Quay in oder to lay the pipes for the sanitary sewer and storm sewer connections. This is necessary to maintain the integrity of the shoring that will support the road while it is excavated. It will also speed up the time it takes to complete the work. The map above shows the area of the main work. During the work 2 lanes of traffic will be maintained in each direction.
GFL expects to have the water main work completed by Friday November, 22, in advance of next week’s work. If necessary they may work on Saturday.
There will be on-site deliveries, interior work and general site housekeeping from 9 am on Saturday through the afternoon.
