Watermain Replacement on Finch Avenue West

Wednesday, August 22, 2018

The City of Toronto will replace the watermain along Finch Avenue West near North Campus beginning mid-August to spring 2019. Humber Capital Development staff have been communicating with City of Toronto staff regarding this project since spring 2018.

Humber has requested that during the school start-up period (first three weeks of September) that all efforts should be considered by the contractor to minimize the traffic impact on Finch Avenue. During this time, work on this project will shift to evening/night hours allowing for better traffic management. 

However, we should still expect some traffic congestion and lane reductions. There may also be increased dust and noise in the area. Staff and students should consider alternative roads to access the campus.

This project is part of the Council-approved 2018 Capital Works Program to renew aging infrastructure, improve water distribution and reduce the risk of watermain breaks.
