Yonge Street reduced to one lane in each direction at Richmond Street intersection for two weeks
Yonge Street at the Richmond Street intersection will be reduced to one lane in each direction from July 11 to 24 for watermain construction work along Richmond Street.

The City is taking steps to minimize disruption to the public during this closure by extending work hours to reduce the project duration and enhancing signage in the area.

A safety barricade will be placed around the work area. This will provide a safe barrier between construction work and pedestrians. Pedestrian access to businesses and walkways will be maintained at all times during construction.

The City has a web-based map to help residents and visitors make their travel plans, available at For more information about construction projects downtown, visit

This work is part of the City's comprehensive and coordinated strategy to rehabilitate and upgrade Toronto's roads, transit and underground infrastructure for current and future needs.

Toronto is Canada's largest city, the fourth largest in North America, and home to a diverse population of about 2.8 million people.
