Sinkhole repaired sooner than expected, Finch Avenue to be re-opened Monday
The City of Toronto today confirmed that construction to repair a sinkhole on Finch Avenue West will be completed sooner than expected, and Finch Avenue between Dufferin Street and Wilmington Avenue will re-open to traffic on Monday, October 5 at 6 a.m.

The sinkhole occurred on July 24 and the City made emergency repairs at that time. After a full evaluation, work began on September 10 to install new storm sewers and restore all of the affected areas. Favourable weather conditions over the past several weeks resulted in the sinkhole being repaired earlier than anticipated.

While the resurfacing of the road has not yet been completed, this work can be done during off-peak hours when traffic is maintained on the road.

Toronto is Canada's largest city and sixth largest government, and home to a diverse population of about 2.6 million people. It is the economic engine of Canada and one of the greenest and most creative cities in North America. Toronto has won numerous awards for quality, innovation and efficiency in delivering public services. 2009 marks the 175th anniversary of Toronto's incorporation as a city. Toronto's government is dedicated to prosperity, opportunity and liveability for all its residents.
