How this may impact you

Throughout the watermain upgrade, City of Toronto machinery and crews will be present along Gould Street from Yonge Street to Mutual. Street parking will not be available and there may be lane restrictions at times.

Building entrance access along Gould Street will be maintained. Where needed, temporary ramps will be installed to facilitate barrier-free access.

Every effort will be made to reduce the negative impact of this work, however some noise and debris will be unavoidable. In the case that access restrictions are required, signage will be posted to identify safe and accessible alternate routes.
