The City of Toronto is modifying and upgrading the storm and sanitary sewer system in the Weston Pelmo Park Area in order to reduce surface and basement flooding.

Due to the depth and nature of the storm sewer construction work on Ralph Street, the road will be closed between Rosemount Avenue and Macdonald Avenue, effective 7 a.m. on Monday, August 31, 2020 to 7 p.m. on Friday, October 2, 2020.

Motorists are reminded to abide by traffic/construction signs posted in local areas to ensure the safe travel of all local road users, pedestrians and cyclists. This project is part of the Council-approved 2020 Basement Flooding Protection Program to improve the water distribution system; renew our aging infrastructure and reduce the risk of sewer collapse or blockages that cause sewer backups and flooding.

Traffic Management on Ralph Street between Rosemount Avenue and MacDonald Avenue:

Ralph Street will be fully closed to all traffic. A 1.8m tall construction hoarding fencing will be placed on Ralph Street to fully protect and isolate the work area from vehicle and pedestrian traffic.


Sidewalks will be kept open for pedestrian use. When work is taking

place on Ralph Street, two flag persons will be present to direct and maintain vehicle and pedestrian traffic away from the active work zone.

Work Hours:

Work will take place from 7 a.m. to 7 p.m., Monday to Friday.


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