Alectra Utilities, your local Hydro Distribution company is committed to providing quality service and a reliable supply of electricity to all our customers. In keeping with this commitment, Alectra Utilities will be removing overhead conductor crossings over the railway along the Lakeshore West Line and installing underground cables under the railway.
Alectra Utilities will be working primarily on the north side of the tracks, approximately 100m south of Carnegie Dr, and South side of the tracks, along Haig Blvd.
The surrounding areas of Haig Boulevard, between Carnegie Dr and Lakeshore Rd E will be impacted minimally by construction activities. In addition, the current road closure shall be extended until March 25, 2022. During construction at the railway crossing on Haig Boulevard, our construction crews have worked diligently within extended weekday work hours and work on Saturdays, weather permitting. However, the reasons for this extension are impacted by the following: heavy snowfall, machine failure due to extreme cold, fallen Bell line, and on-site vandalism.
This project continues to require significant excavation along the Municipal Road Allowance to relocate the underground and overhead electrical distribution equipment. Additionally, construction vehicles and equipment will be apparent, and present during construction. We apologize for any inconvenience this may cause. Alectra Utilities will adhere to best construction practices, ensuring a safe work zone. The pedestrian walkway over the railway will remain open during this time.
Furthermore, entrance(s) to driveways may be impacted during construction; however, every effort to coordinate safe vehicular passage during construction will be undertaken.
Scheduled outage notification will be by phone, please ensure that your primary contact phone number attached to your Alectra Utilities account is current.
Alectra Utilities would like to thank you in advance for your understanding and cooperation.
