Toronto Hydro Project Bessborough–Broadway (E18200/E18201) is set to begin any day as part of the upgrade of the aging underground electrical system in North Leaside and Bayview Ave to Blythwood Road. The upgrade includes the installation of electrical cables within the City of Toronto’s public property allowance in front of or adjacent to residential lots. According to Hydro, the “civil and electrical portions of this project” are expected to begin this month with an approximate completion date of late December 2017.
EAST TO SUTHERLAND
The project area is along Bayview Avenue between Blythwood Road and Broadway Avenue, then east along Broadway between Bayview and Sutherland Drive and including a portion of Sutherland. Toronto Hydro is saying that crews and contractors will take “extra care and precautions” around property. The portion of the driveway, sidewalk and other areas affected by work will be restored upon completion of the project as season, weather and schedules permit.
