March 11, 2016

What work is starting?

What: In conjunction with the nearby Eglinton Avenue East sewer rehabilitation work which occurred this past winter, crews are restoring a man-hole on Walder Avenue, just to the north of Eglinton Avenue.

Why: This work is necessary to complete the restoration work for Walder Avenue, following a major sewer upgrade beneath Eglinton Avenue.

When: Work has commenced, and will continue into the week of March 14, 2016.  Work may be rescheduled or adjusted due to weather conditions and/or unforeseen circumstances.

Where: The work zone will be set-up on the west side of Walder Avenue, just north of Eglinton Avenue East to approximately 10 Walder Avenue (south of Roehampton Avenue).  


Workers are in the process of spraying/coating the interior of a man-hole shaft in order to rehabilitate it. An air-drying and curing resin/epoxy (styrene) is utilized to apply a film which coats the interior of the man-hole shaft.  It is unlikely that nearby residents may smell the resin, however, it is not harmful at these levels to their health. This is a standard process used for sewer repair work in the City of Toronto.

Traffic Details:

  • Traffic on Walder Avenue north of Eglinton Avenue East to 10 Walder Avenue (south of Roehampton Avenue) will be reduced to one lane in the northbound direction.   

All work zones will be separated from the right-of-way with traffic cones and/or fencing. Traffic delays are expected during construction. Please watch for traffic signs and take care when travelling near construction areas.
