Traffic Change at Mount Pleasant Station

 
mars 22, 2018

What Work is Taking Place?

On Friday March 23, a new construction stage will be implemented at Mt. Pleasant Road and Eglinton Avenue East, to make way for hydro and telecommunication utilities relocation work on the south side of Eglinton Ave between Brownlow Ave and Mt. Pleasant Rd.  Once the utility work is complete, launch shaft construction will commence in the same area as part of the ongoing storm sewer installation work.  Pedestrian will be rerouted around the southwest work zone during this stage.

Drill Move

As part of the traffic changes, the drill rig located in the northwest work zone on Eglinton Ave E will be demobilized and relocated to the northeast work zone.  The drill will travel along Eglinton Ave.  Traffic signals at the intersection of Mt. Pleasant Rd. and Eglinton Ave E will be temporarily out of service and traffic will be controlled by a Paid Duty Office while this activity takes place.
