Information as of October 14, 2016

What is the Crosstown?


Metrolinx is building the Eglinton Crosstown, Toronto’s new 19-kilometre light rail transit (LRT) line that will run along Eglinton Avenue with a central 10 km underground section. The Crosstown will connect Mount Dennis in the west to Kennedy Road in the east, and the new service will be up to 60% faster than the bus service today. With 25 stations and stops and connections to 3 TTC subway stations, 54 local bus routes, 3 GO Transit lines and the UP Express, the Crosstown will improve travel times and change the way we move through the heart of the city.

Hours of Work 

The work will take approximately eight (8) weeks to complete and will occur between 7:00 a.m. and 7:00 p.m. Monday to Friday.  Please note that work could be rescheduled due to weather conditions or unforeseen circumstances.

What to Expect

Nearby businesses and residents can expect noise in the area caused by excavators, bobcats, trucks and other construction equipment, as well as dust from demolition activity and debris removal. For safety purposes, metal fencing and/or plywood hoarding and jersey barriers will be installed along the length of the retaining wall and the sidewalk will be closed.

Traffic & Pedestrian Impacts

The westbound curb lane of Eglinton Avenue West from Keelesdale Drive to Weston Road will be closed and Eglinton Avenue will be reduced from three lanes to two lanes of traffic.

The sidewalk on the north side of Eglinton Avenue West, between Keelesdale Drive and Weston Road, will be closed as of fall 2016 until spring 2019.
