Action on Roads

With warm weather comes increased construction activity on our roads. This year, after an extensive push from my office and countless meetings with senior staff, over 20 roads in Ward 25 will be undergoing reconstruction or repairs.

Road Repaving

The following road segments will be repaved and have extensive maintenance repairs completed:

  • Blanchard Road from Blyth Hill Road to Blyth Dale Road
  • Blyth Dale Road from Blyth Hill Road to Blythwood Road
  • Fidelia Avenue from Strathgowan Crescent to Dawlish Avenue
  • Glenallen Road from Strathgowan Crescent to Mildenhall Road
  • Mildenhall Road from Blythwood Road to Lawrence Avenue East
  • Stratford Crescent from Mildenhall Road to about #101 Stratford Crescent

If your street is scheduled for repaving and you would like more information about the timing of the road work or the type of work to be completed, I encourage you to reach out to Bruce Shaw, Supervisor of Road Operations, at bshaw2@toronto.ca.

If your street is not included in the above list but is in poor condition, please let me know at Councillor_Robinson@toronto.ca. City staff have the final say in scheduling road work, but I’d be happy to bring your concerns to their attention or request that any interim repairs be completed as soon as possible.
