Road and sidewalk construction work on Avenue Road
Road and sidewalk work will take place on Avenue Road, between Bloor Street and Lawrence Avenue from June 10 to September 15.

Repairs to utility cuts, road paving, line painting, and fixing sidewalks and curbs is among the work planned for the area.

During construction, at least one lane of traffic will be open in each direction. However, there will be traffic restrictions at times and motorists should expect delays. Alternative north-south routes for motorists include Yonge Street, Spadina Road and Bathurst Street.

Pedestrian access to all properties on Avenue Road will be maintained at all times.

"This $6 million investment will significantly improve the quality of Avenue Road in these areas," said Councillor Denzil Minnan-Wong (Ward 34, Don Valley East), Chair of the City of Toronto's Public Works and Infrastructure Committee. "We ask for the public's patience as we undertake this important work to improve infrastructure in the community."

This road work is the final part of the City's overall construction work on Avenue Road which included watermain replacement and other infrastructure improvements.

In addition, road and sidewalk repairs work will also take place on Lonsdale Road, from Avenue Road to Oriole Parkway; Oriole Parkway, from Lonsdale Road to Chaplin Crescent; and Chaplin Crescent, from Oriole Parkway to Avenue Road - south of Eglinton Avenue.
