Work has begun on project to install sewer

Work has begun on a project to install a sewer in Lavergne Avenue between Lawrence Avenue and Montrose Avenue that will require digging under the Kennedy Expressway.
The project to install 2,670 feet of new sewers will last about 15 months. The project will improve drainage in the area and help reduce flooding during heavy rains.
Eastbound Lawrence has been closed as workers dig a drop shaft on Lawrence that will go down about 230 feet and connect to a Deep Tunnel feeder tunnel. The project will cost $20 million.
