Waterfront Toronto has just released their newsletter for February 2013. Once again, they’ve got details on a variety of construction projects, including several notes on the Canary District project in the West Don Lands. Neighbours near Sumach Street will want to note this section in particular:
Construction to install underground services on Sumach Street between Eastern Avenue and King Street will begin on March 4 on the west side of the street. The work includes the installation of the new stormwater system and will take approximately four weeks to complete. North/south access to the street will be maintained throughout the project, however, while the work is underway street parking will not be available.
We’ll keep you updated as work progresses.
