Traffic Signal Hanging at Fairbank Station

avril 3, 2017

What Work is Taking Place?

To make way for station construction, crews must relocate and hang the existing traffic signals at Dufferin Street and Eglinton Avenue West.  Traffic signal relocation will take place over five days, with curbside lane closures throughout the intersection.  Crews will install temporary traffic poles and signals at each corner of the intersection.  The temporary traffic signals and cables will be hung overhead, while the existing traffic poles are removed.  Following installation, the temporary signals will be tested, and once complete, the new temporary traffic signals will come into effect.
