Finch West LRT - Driftwood: Enbridge relocating gas lines, starting April 3

Metrolinx continues to prepare for upcoming construction of the Finch West light rail transit line between Humber College and Finch West subway station in the North York and Etobicoke areas of Toronto.

Enbridge continues relocating gas lines on Finch Avenue West to prepare for the project. Enbridge must move the natural gas pipelines to a lower site under the roadway, deeper beneath the future track-bed.

Starting Monday, April 3, crews work

in the intersection of Finch Avenue West with Driftwood Avenue,

near the site of the future Driftwood stop.

As the crews trench and install the new gas lines at a lower depth, they will shift the work zone within the intersection. They’ll restrict traffic on the east- and westbound lanes of Finch West independently. The work zone may also temporarily block north- and southbound traffic lanes on Driftwood.

Construction at the intersection affects TTC service along these routes:

  • 36 Finch West;
  • 108 Downsview; and
  • 336 Finch West overnight.

The TTC may also temporarily relocate bus stops as construction proceeds.

Enbridge continues relocating the gas lines at Driftwood Avenue “for approximately one month”, or until about May 1.
