Metrolinx Community Notice - Sewage System Site Assessment

Published on February 1, 2021

Metrolinx has issued a Community Bulletin: 

February 3rd to February 5th, work crews will be conducting site assessments of manholes and sewer pipes in order to evaluate their suitability for flow monitoring of sewers which will take place later this month. This work will take place in proximity to the future Ontario Line stations from Exhibition to Ontario Science Centre (see below for the specific locations).


  • The work will take place overnight only starting February 3rd and concluding the morning of February 5th.


  • The work will take place overnight in order to reduce the impacts to surrounding traffic. Any remaining traffic will be safely diverted around the work site.
  • Pedestrian barriers will be put in place as pedestrian traffic may be impacted as work will temporarily set up on sidewalks.
  • Public transit will not be impeded by the works.
  • Some sites have been identified as requiring a paid duty police officer to assist with traffic control and the paid duty request has been submitted to the City.
  • We anticipate that this will assessment work will create minimal noise and no vibration as equipment used will consist of a tripod and a manual winch.
