  • Olive

    Willowdale (Ward 23)

    Week of January 28, 2013

    Construction Update:

    Our contractors and crews are working in the neighbourhood. Please exercise caution as we complete the digging and trenching work. Once crews finish the civil work, the electrical phase will begin. Toronto Hydro crews will return to either pull new electrical cable through underground concrete encased ducts or string new cable overhead and remove additional poles.

    Once in place, we will energize the new cable. This does not involve invasive construction. The neighbourhood may experience a power interruption as we switch from the old to the new supply. We will aim to provide notification 24 to 48 hours in advance of a power interruption. Temporary repairs to the driveway, sidewalk and sod will be made during construction and permanent restoration will follow. The City of Toronto is responsible for restoring the sidewalks following project completion.
