Advanced Watermain, Utility and Road Works for Finch West Subway Station

December 31, 2010

Construction Notice No. 6d      Update: December 24, 2010

Work is progressing on an extension of Tangiers Road and Murray Ross Parkway in preparation of the Finch West Subway Station construction. Once complete, the extension will provide a detour route around the intersection of Keele Street and Finch Ave West to help ease traffic congestion during station construction.

This advanced work also includes the relocation of the watermains and utilities on Keele St., from Finch Ave West to north of Murray Ross Parkway and the relocation of utilities on Murray Ross Parkway through Keele St. This work is expected to be complete March 2011. (Expected completion date is subject to change due to weather and/or unforeseen events.)
