What Work is Taking Place?

Crews are working to replace an existing watermain north of Eglinton Avenue East within the existing work zone at the northeast corner of Don Mills Road and Eglinton Avenue East. This work supports the upgrade of existing water infrastructure around the future Science Centre Station.

Starting in mid-March for approximately three (3) weeks, work to connect the new watermain section to the existing infrastructure will take place. During these works, residents in the catchment area may experience lower than normal water pressure.

Catchment Area is from east of Leslie and Millwood to Wynford and just north of Wynford to south of Overlea


  • Work to connect the new infrastructure is expected to begin as early as mid-March and last approximately three (3) weeks.
  • Work may occur between the hours of 7:00 AM and 11:00 PM, 7 days a week.In the event that overnight work is required, Metrolinx and CTS will notify the public in advance and monitor activities throughout.
  • Work may be rescheduled due to weather conditions or unforeseen circumstances.

What to Expect

  • The watermain will be installed in sections from Gervais Drive to Don Mills Road. The majority of the work will be performed within the existing work zone.
  • Nearby businesses and residents can expect noise from excavators, bobcats, trucks and other construction equipment caused by utilities relocation activity.
