Construction Notice – PROJECT UPDATE – REVISED COMPLETION DATE East Trunk Offline Storage Facility Southcreek Road and Etobicoke Valley Dog Park

Peel Region has been working in your area to install a new sanitary trunk sewer offline storage facility, and properly retire an existing sanitary trunk sewer, as shown on the attached map.
To respond to climate change and meet the demands of a growing population, we are constructing an underground facility that will store wastewater during large rain events. (For more information, see for Environmental Assessment.)

Construction schedule
Work is progressing with most of the underground works completed. However, all remaining work and restoration is now scheduled to be completed in Fall 2024. All efforts will be made to open the Dog Park at our earliest opportunity.
All work is under warranty for two years from the completion date.

Contractor and working hours
The work is being completed by EBC Inc. and supported by Arcadis (previously known as IBI Group), both under contract to Peel Region. This contractor’s normal working hours are from 7 a.m. to 7 p.m., Monday to Friday.
These hours are consistent with the local municipality’s bylaws. To complete the work on time, there may be times when work will be completed later into the evening or on Saturdays. We understand this may cause some inconvenience, but shorter working days would require your neighbourhood to be under construction for a longer period of time. We will attempt to minimize overnight work whenever possible.

Closure of Etobicoke Valley Dog Park and associated trails
To keep pedestrians and their pets safe, the Etobicoke Valley Dog Park and the trails leading to the dog park will continue to be closed until all work is completed in Fall 2024. Trail closure signs are posted on site. Alternate dog park locations can be found by visiting

Once all work is completed and the dog park is reopened, we will notify residents through an advertisement in the local newspaper and by distributing notices to the surrounding area.

Traffic and parking
We will work to manage traffic in the area for the safety of workers, road users and residents.
• Temporary lane restrictions may be required on Dundas Street East near the active construction area to complete the work safely. As a result, road users may experience delays on Dundas Street East.
• The south portion of Southcreek Road will remain closed to traffic, as well as the Etobicoke Valley Dog Park’s parking lot. Access to businesses will be maintained.
• There will be no on-street parking on Southcreek Road during construction.
• Access for emergency vehicles will be maintained at all times.

Safety during construction
Construction zones require extra caution to keep everyone safe – pedestrians, cyclists, drivers, and construction workers. When driving, walking, or biking through the construction area, please be aware of your surroundings, watch for construction crews and other road users, slow down, account for delays, and consider other routes if possible.

Project funding
