“Late March 2017” (possibly as early as Monday, March 20), crews start phase 1 of the project, occupying a section of the roadway

  • at the intersection of Finch Avenue West with Kipling Avenue,

near the site of the future Kipling stop, as crews dig a trench and install the gas line in its new location.

They also work

  • on Finch Avenue West between Kipling Avenue and 400 metres east of Kipling Avenue.

During working hours, the work zone may restrict traffic on the east- and westbound lanes of Finch West and on the north- and southbound lanes of Kipling Avenue or block the entire roadway for a short term. All roads reopen evenings after working hours for local residents. Driveways will be accessible to residents at all times. Expect delays.

Crews mostly work from 7 a.m. until 7 p.m. Mondays to Saturdays. Occasionally, they may work late nights, early mornings or Sundays to complete this phase of the project on time.
