Watermain Replacement Broadview Avenue – Update #4

City staff have provided the following update regarding the watermain replacement work on Broadview Avenue:

Contract: 14PP-06WS
Start Date: May 11, 2015
End Date: March 25, 2016

*Timeline is subject to change.

In early May, The City of Toronto started to replace the watermain on Broadview Avenue between Westwood Avenue and Danforth Avenue; this work was scheduled to be completed by December 31, 2015.

There have been unforeseen delays with continuous water testing of the new watermain before it is connected and put into service, affecting the project end date. Work is now scheduled to end as noted above.

We recognize that a project of this nature is disruptive to the community and apologize for the inconveniences caused by the delayed end date. When the work is completed, all four lanes on Broadview Avenue will reopen to traffic.


To date, the following work has been completed:

  • Replacing the existing watermain and all but one water service.

You will have seen water flushing or running in areas along this project which enables the City to clean the new watermain to ensure the new watermain meets Toronto Water’s servicing and quality standards. There are several test sites in the work zone. Before the balance of the new watermain is connected to the existing distribution system, Toronto Water’s servicing and quality standards must be met.

The following work will be completed in the coming weeks:

  • Replacing the City-owned portion of water service to Broadview TTC Subway Station.
  • Complete final watermain connection at Broadview Avenue and Fulton Avenue.

Decommission old watermain valves / chambers and fire hydrants between Fulton Avenue and Broadview Subway Station.


Please Note: The City of Toronto will resurface Broadview Avenue between Danforth Avenue and O’Connor Drive in 2016. A notice will be provided.
