The City of Toronto may require further tweaks to the road closure plan. We will post and circulate any changes. However, as per the City’s operating procedures, we may not receive any such information until Thursday, July 8.

If there are high winds, thunder, or heavy rains, the work may need to be halted and then proceed when it is safe to do so. This may entail working later into the evenings and or possibly extending the work through to Monday in extreme circumstances. Every effort will be made to complete the work between Friday morning and Sunday evening.
