The City of Toronto is improving the streetscape of College Street West between Shaw Street and Havelock Street. The improvements include new parkettes, bike rings, tree plantings and light fixtures.

 Work Hours: The contractor can work from 7:00 a.m. to 11:00 p.m., Monday to Friday, and will do so as required. The Contractor may also work on weekends as necessary.

Phase 1: North side of College Street (Havelock to Shaw): Expected end date: Late August

Phase 2: South side of College Street (Havelock to Shaw): Late August to mid-October

  • Remove the old sidewalk, install electrical conduit, pour concrete and install new pavers
  • Remove old tree protectors
  • Install new tree protection
  • Restore areas affected by construction

 Phase 3: Parkette installation – Mid-October to November 30.

Traffic Management: Efforts have been made to manage traffic in the area for the safety of workers, road users and residents. Access for emergency vehicles will be maintained at all times. Road users should expect delays and increased traffic on nearby main and side streets.

  • Traffic on College Street will be reduced to two lanes, one in each direction through this work zone.
  • Due to construction work on the sidewalk and the curb lane being used for machinery. A special walking lane will be made available for pedestrians with access to businesses.

Work will start on the north lane of College Street starting at Havelock and working east towards Shaw Street. When work is complete on the North side it will move to the South side of College Street an update will be provided before the work zone is shifted. 

 Garbage & Recycling Pickup During College Street Promenade BIA Construction 

Throughout the construction project, every Thursday by 4:30 p.m.:
Leave bins for collection in front of your property or if you can bring the bins to the corner nearest your property before the Thursday night pick up that would be helpful. The Contractor will move bins to each corner so that waste can be picked up according to schedule. The Contractor will then return bins in front of your address on Friday mornings. If you missed pick up or leaving your bins out, please contact the inspector on this project, the inspector will then call 311 to arrange for pick up.
