Toronto Hydro is planning to rebuild the aging overhead and underground electrical system in your community to help improve service reliability.The rebuild includes the installation of the underground ducts and electrical cables within the City of Toronto’s public property allowance in front of or adjacent to your lot.

The civil and electrical portions of this project are expected to begin by late August 2017 with an approximate completion date of late January 2018. The boundaries include Combe Avenue (North), Maxwell Street (East), Clanton Park Road (South) and Wilson Heights Boulevard (West). Throughout this project, no planned outages are expected.

Toronto Hydro crews and contractors will take extra care and precautions around your property. Please note that we may require access to your property to install an underground duct from the property line to the meter base location at your home. The portion of the driveway, sidewalk and other areas affected by our work will be restored upon completion of the project as season, weather and schedules permit.
