What Work is Taking Place?

Since early May 2020, crews have been performing hydro utility installation work in the existing work zone on Berwick Avenue and in the Berwick-Hillsdale laneway.  A hydro chamber was constructed and now, cable work is being completed in the north half of the laneway. Approximately one (1) week of work remains. Once complete, the area will be restored.



Hours of Work

Underway through May 2020

Work will take place between 7:00 a.m. – 7:00 p.m.

This work may be rescheduled due to inclement weather or unforeseen circumstances


What to Expect

Noise from construction activity, including trucks and heavy equipment can be expected

Trenching in the north half of the laneway can be expected

All property access is expected to be maintained, though vehicles and pedestrians may have to enter the laneway from either side depending on the location of the work

Expect delays when travelling in the vicinity of Berwick Ave during this work


Traffic and Pedestrian Impacts

The existing work zone will remain in place

No through access in the Berwick-Hillsdale laneway will be permitted during each shift

At the end of each shift, the trenches will be plated and through access will be restored
