Section of Bloor Street West to remain closed for another week
The stretch of Bloor Street West from Lansdowne Avenue to Symington Avenue will
remain closed to through traffic for approximately one more week for repair

A break in a sewer pipe at the intersection of Bloor Street West and Symington
Avenue caused a collapse in the asphalt. The repair work is taking longer than
usual, as one of the sewer pipes is located almost 10 metres below ground.
There is no impact on the sewer system.

"Once the sewer pipe is repaired, there will need to be repair work done on the
utility lines, as well as resurfacing the road," said Mario Crognale, Director,
Water and Wastewater Operations. "We are doing our best to ensure that the work
is done as quickly as possible. We apologize for any inconvenience to Toronto

City staff and contractors are working around the clock to repair the problem.
