Starting Monday, January 8, the City of Toronto is closing

  • Wright Avenue between Gibson Avenue and Jane Street

during a project to modify and upgrade the storm- and sanitary-sewer system and reduce surface basement flooding.

Crews are:

  • excavating the road and digging a trench to access and install the new sewers;
  • replacing City-owned water service pipes that do not meet City standards from the sewer and water mains to private-property lines; and
  • restoring all work areas with asphalt, concrete or grass when they’ve finished working underground.

The TTC is detouring buses along these routes, while the street is closed:

  • 32 Eglinton West; and
  • 79 Scarlett Rd.
