City of Toronto increasing enforcement of construction activity on city streets
The City of Toronto will be increasing its enforcement of construction activity taking place within the City's right-of-way to make sure those areas are safe for all road users. The initiative will begin this week.

City staff will be making sure construction sites are cleared of litter and other debris, construction vehicles are parked in the proper locations, hoarding is properly located, and that signing and other traffic control measures are clearly visible, working properly and in the correct locations.

Residents can assist with this initiative by calling 311 to report construction material on city streets or in the street right-of-way, or damaged/missing traffic controls such as a missing sign that could pose a danger to pedestrians, cyclists or motorists. When reporting, residents should provide the precise location of the area that needs to be cleaned up – such as a nearby property address and the nearest cross streets.

Toronto is Canada's largest city, the fourth largest in North America, and home to a diverse population of about 2.8 million people. It is a global centre for business, finance, arts and culture and is consistently ranked one of the world's most livable cities. Toronto is proud to be the Host City for the 2015 Pan American and Parapan American Games. For information on non-emergency City services and programs, Toronto residents, businesses and visitors can visit, call 311, 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, or follow us @TorontoComms.
