Southbound lanes of Lansdowne from Dundas to Rideau closed for watermain work
The southbound lanes of Lansdowne Avenue, from south of Dundas Street to Rideau Avenue, will be closed from June 13 to September 30 while work takes place to replace the watermain and reconstruct the sidewalk and road in the area.

Construction work will occur between 7 a.m. and 7 p.m. on weekdays and from 9 a.m. to 6 p.m. on Saturdays.

Access to the No Frills Shopping Plaza will be maintained. Cyclists travelling southbound on Lansdowne Avenue, between Bloor Street and College Street, will be diverted west to St. Helen's Avenue via Lumbervale Avenue, then west onto Dundas Street West and south on Sorauren Avenue. Cyclists travelling northbound on Lansdowne Avenue, between Rideau Avenue and Dundas Street West, will be required to merge with traffic.

During the closure, there will be periods of time when it appears there is no work taking place at the site. This will occur when crews are performing watermain disinfection and custom pipe work. The lane will reopen when the work is complete and the road is fully restored.

Details about the TTC route diversion are available at
