Hi Everyone – There is some construction scheduled for Danforth Avenue, east of Woodbine, including the street and sidewalks. Some good news too, including trees and other greening initiatives!
On Wednesday, April 16, between 5:00-9:00pm, drop by 2575 Danforth Avenue (east of Main) for more information. Here’s the poster (2 pages), and the text is copied below just in case the poster shows up teeny tiny on your screen.
The City of Toronto has scheduled watermain replacement, road and sidewalk reconstruction, paving and streetscape improvements on Danforth Avenue between Woodbine Avenue and Victoria Park Avenue. Various streetscaping elements are being implemented in cooperation with the Danforth Village Business Improvement Area (BIA). This work will bring the roadway up to a state of good repair, and beautify the street. This project is part of the Council approved 2014 Capital Works Program.

Alternative parking arrangements will be made when required.
Access for all services (i.e. garbage collection, emergency vehicles or any other usual services) will be maintained. Pedestrian access to businesses and walkways will be maintained on both sides of the road at all times during construction.
The contractor will further notify you of any temporary disruptions. Every effort will be made to reduce the inconvenience. The City appreciates your understanding and co-operation.
Private Items on City Property
Some properties may have signage, outdoor fruit stands or other physical features in front of their properties which are within the City property limits. These may be in conflict with the construction. In such cases, owners are advised to remove these items prior to the beginning of construction. The City will not be responsible for damage to any privately owned items installed on the City’s property.
Work will take place from 7 a.m. to 7 p.m. Monday to Friday, 7 a.m. to 5 p.m. Saturday, with work after hours and on Sundays as required.
