Working Hours

  • Our normal working hours are 7 a.m. to 7 p.m.
  • Due to the high traffic counts in the area and the need to work with MiWay and Square One, we must work at night on:
    • Square One Drive: Duke of York Boulevard to City Centre Drive
    • Rathburn Road/Hurontario Street intersection
    • Hurontario Street: Rathburn Road to Robert Speck Parkway
  • A noise bylaw exemption has been granted for working at night.

Road Closure at Duke of York Boulevard/Square One Drive

A temporary road closure is anticipated at the Duke of York Boulevard/Square One Drive intersection from mid-October to mid-November, weather permitting.

Traffic and Parking Control

  • We may need to reduce traffic to a single lane during construction.
  • If we have to reroute traffic, we will place signs giving directions.
  • On-street parking will be reduced during construction.

Trimming Trees

  • If tree branches within the right-of-way interfere with construction, the contractor will have the trees pruned before equipment enters the drip line of the tree.
  • If tree branches on private property interfere with construction, they will be pruned back to the nearest suitable trunk, crotch or branch.
  • The contractor will ask you for permission before cutting any branches on private property. If you do not allow the contractor onto your property to trim the branches, the branches will be cut vertically at the property line.

Interrupting Your Water Supply

  • It is our goal to let you know 48 hours (2 days) in advance if we need to shut off your water. Occasionally, we may have to reduce this notice to 24 hours.
  • If we have to shut off your water because of an emergency, we will do everything we can to fix the problem as quickly as possible.


You may feel slight vibrations from the construction work.

Project Updates

  • The Region of Peel will always let you know if there are any major changes to the plans.
  • We will try to disturb you as little as possible.
  • Please call the project manager or inspector if you have any concerns or special needs.

How Did We Do?

  • After we've finished, we will give you a postage-paid card for you to rate our work.
  • Please complete the card and mail it back to us.
