About the project

Alectra Utilities is installing new underground infrastructure in support of the Baker District Redevelopment project. Drexler Construction Ltd. is working under Alectra to install the concrete ducts and transformers required to run new power lines to supply power to the library and residential development, while upgrading electrical services to existing customers.

As such, a major underground duct needs to be installed along and crossing Chapel Lane.

If you have any questions about the Alectra work, contact Michael Field at 416-819-7939 or [email protected].

Work begins May 27

Work is expected to start on or about Monday, May 27 and will take approximately four weeks, weather permitting.

Chapel Lane closed

Chapel Lane will be closed from Baker Street to the back of the Bank of Montreal parking lot (noted in the map below).

Property access

All properties on Chapel Lane will remain accessible via alternative entrances arranged by the contractor and notified to businesses directly. However, there will be no through traffic on this road during this timeframe.

Every effort will be made to maintain access to driveways in the construction area during working hours (7 a.m.–7 p.m.). Please note that construction activities and equipment movement may temporarily impact access to private property.

City services

There will be no interruption to any City services during construction. Waste collection will not be affected. Please continue to place your green, blue and grey carts at the curb as usual.
