As part of Waterfront Toronto’s Port Lands Flood Protection Enabling Infrastructure Project, the Keating Railway Bridge must be widened, in addition to the construction of the new Lake Shore Bridge. As such, Enbridge Gas has identified that a segment of a 20-inch vital natural gas main needs to be relocated in order to facilitate the Waterfront’s construction project while maintaining the safe and reliable delivery of natural gas to customers in the City of Toronto. Relocation of the pipeline is proposed to be completed in two phases:

  • Phase I: construction of a temporary above-ground bypass of the pipeline (approx. 209 metres) on the sidewalk south of the newly built and widened Lake Shore Bridge.
  • Phase II: relocate the pipeline from its temporary location to its permanent location within a dedicated utility corridor on the north side of the Keating Railway Bridge (approx. 166 metres).
