Water Service Disruptions: From time-to-time, the water supply to your property will be shut-off to complete construction; the contractor will provide at least 24-hour advance notice. Throughout the work, it is recommended that you temporarily disconnect any water treatment systems (i.e. softeners or filters), water-cooled air conditioners or similar plumbing fixtures. Automatic lawn sprinkler systems may also be affected, therefore, you may need to water manually. In the event you did not received advanced notice, an emergency water shut off could have been necessary.

Road and Sidewalk Access: In order to complete the work in a safe manner, there will be road and sidewalk restrictions within the construction work zone. Access for emergency vehicles will be maintained at all times.

Driveway Access: The contractor will notify you of any temporary restrictions to your driveway access. If your property has two entrances, one entrance will be kept open at all times.

Parking: Parking in the active work zone is not permitted due to space requirements for construction equipment and materials. If your parked vehicle affects the construction work, it will be re-located with no charge to the owner. If

your vehicle is moved, please contact parking control for its location at416-808-2222.

Cyclists: If travelling on Shuter Street, please share the traffic lane in the active work zones.

Garbage & Recycling: Please follow your normal routine. If required, the contractor will move bins to an appropriate location and return them.  Please ensure that you label your bins with your address.
