WHAT WORK IS TAKING PLACE?

Geotechnical monitoring instruments are installed in the vicinity of the station construction to monitor the ground conditions as construction is underway. 

Monitoring instruments are regularly checked to measure any movements of the ground and assess if there is a need for additional measures. 

The majority of the monitors for Cedarvale Station were installed in late 2016/early 2017.

Crews will drill approximately 8 boreholes in the TTC Eglinton West Station Bus Loop and on Eglinton Avenue near the TTC Station Entrance to install additional monitors.

TIMING 

  • To reduce the impact on TTC operations, work is scheduled during the overnight periods.
  • Work may take place overnight on January 12, January 13, and January 14.
  • Work may occur between the hours of 9:00 PM – 7:00 AM, nightly.
  • Work may be delayed due to weather or unforeseen circumstances.

WHAT TO EXPECT

  • Equipment and work trucks will be present in the TTC bus loop and in the roadway.
  • Crews will move around the bus loop as they install the boreholes, moving from one borehole location to the next.
  • Nearby residents and businesses can expect to hear minimal noise related to drilling, saw-cutting, hydro-vacuuming, and the use of heavy equipment.

TRAFFIC AND TRANSIT ACCESS

  • Access to the Allen and the TTC Eglinton West Subway Station will be maintained at all times. 

TRAVELLING SMART DURING CONSTRUCTION
