Laneway Reconstruction North of  Queen Street West from Callender Street to Triller Avenue

Expected Start Date: Early Fall 2015

Expected End Date:  Winter 2015

*Timeline is subject to change. Future notice to be provided.

 The City of Toronto is planning to reconstruct a laneway in your area. The laneway is located 30m north of Queen Street West and runs from Callender Street to Triller Avenue. Our inspection of the laneway shows that it needs reconstruction to bring it to a state of good repair.

This work is part of the Council-approved 2015 Capital Works Program to renew aging city roads and laneways for current and future needs.







  • Work crews will mark the locations of underground utilities, such as gas, water and cable so that the construction work does not interfere with these utilities.
  • Affected properties will receive a Construction Notice approximately two weeks before work begins with more information about the work.
  • Work in the boulevard in front of homes and commercial properties is expected. This work includes removing and replacing driveways, municipal sidewalks and grassed boulevards, where necessary.
  • Property owners should remove items located within City property limits (boulevard), such as landscaping and or decorative objects before work starts. If you have a sprinkler system within the boulevard, please contact the Field Ambassador listed below.

Accessible Accommodation: Residents who require accommodation (level entry, longer notice, etc.) must contact the Field Ambassador to arrange for access during the construction period.



If you have questions about the upcoming work, please contact us.
