IMPORTANT INFORMATION ABOUT COVID AND CONSTRUCTION WORK IN TORONTO

As restrictions on construction have been lifted by the Province of Ontario, City-led infrastructure will continue to proceed. During construction, the contractor is responsible for the Health & Safety on site under the Ontario Occupational Health and Safety Act and is expected to implement COVID-19 mitigation practices. For more information on the City's response to COVID-19 please visit toronto.ca/covid-19.



WHAT TO EXPECT DURING CONSTRUCTION

Work Hours: Work will take place from 7 a.m. to 7 p.m., Monday to Friday, with work after hours and on weekends as required.


Traffic Management: Efforts have been made to manage traffic in the area for the safety of workers, road users and residents. Road users should expect delays and increased traffic on nearby main and side streets. TTC detours on Church Street will resume when road reconstruction from Jane Street to Elm Street begins.


Road and Sidewalk Access: In order to complete the work in a safe manner, there will be road and sidewalk restrictions within the work zone. Access for emergency vehicles will be maintained at all times.


Driveway Access: The contractor will notify you of any temporary restrictions to your driveway access. If your property has two entrances, one entrance will be kept open at all times.


Parking: Parking in the active work zone is not permitted as space is needed for construction equipment and materials. This project will affect on-street parking. If your parked vehicle affects construction work, it will be relocated with no charge to the owner. Please call 416-808-2222 for its location.


Parking Violation Notice: In an effort to reduce ticketing due to construction, the City encourages communities with construction to be patient as neighbours may need to temporarily relocate vehicles. If enforcement is called, enforcement must issue a yellow parking violation notice (ticket). If you receive a yellow notice during this construction work, do the following within 15 days of the notice date: 1) Contact the Field Ambassador using the contact below and give them the yellow notice number. 2) Dispute the parking violation notice online or in person following the process listed on the reverse side of the parking violation notice.

You may use this construction notice as part of the explanation of why the violation should be cancelled. Please note: violation notices cannot be cancelled if vehicles are parked in illegal parking spots (i.e. in front of a fire hydrant or in no parking zones).


Tree Removal: Due to the nature of this project, the City may have to remove street trees from the City's boulevard. If this affects a tree near your property, you will receive a separate notice. The City will plant a replacement tree of at least 60mm in diameter.


Physical Distancing: There are times when contractors need to communicate with homeowners about what is happening on-site. This could be about driveway access, water shut offs, exterior pre-construction inspections, and site restoration work (landscaping, installing pavers etc.). Contractor's staff will be identifiable by their high-visibility clothing.

Where possible, a phone number for a contact person on-site will be provided on notices, to answer questions about work near your property. At other times, the contractor may knock on your door, but will then step away the required distance to discuss the work that is taking place and what can be expected that day. Please practice physical distancing with workers so everyone can remain safe. If you have questions, call the contact provided on this notice.


Restoration: The construction work area will be restored with sod and/or asphalt where required to its initial condition. Interlocking bricks, flagstone on a granular base, or other similar features that are removed from public and private property during construction will be replaced. Lawn seeding and/or laying of sod will be done as needed during ideal growing seasons only - in the spring (April to June) and fall (September to October).
