Affected Services

Water, sanitary sewer, Hydro, telephone, Cable TV, and gas services should not be affected by the construction, barring any unforeseen circumstances.

Access to Parks

All reasonable efforts will be made to maintain vehicle access to parks. However, there may be some temporary interruptions to access during construction. Access will be restored as quickly as possible. Pedestrian access to parks will be maintained during construction. Access for emergency vehicles will be maintained at all times.


The contractor is required to conduct his work in a safe manner, including fencing of deep excavations, etc. We ask that you take extra caution during the construction period to ensure everyone’s safety.
