Upcoming Traffic and Pedestrian Changes at Forest Hill Station

novembre 22, 2018

What Work is Taking Place? 

A new traffic configuration will be implemented at Forest Hill Station this month.  Construction will shift to the north side of Eglinton Avenue, and traffic will shift to the south.  Peveril Hill Road will remain closed to accommodate the construction laydown area.  This change is required to make way for the next phase of construction at Forest Hill Station.

Once the traffic change is complete, crews will begin support of excavation in the north station box area.  Support of excavation, also known as shoring, is a common step in constructing the foundation of a building. Piles are drilled, large steel beams are installed, and concrete is poured.  Following that, a shallow area is excavated while lagging, braces and tie-backs are installed.  Excavation at the Secondary Entrance as well as utilities relocation will continue while this work takes place.
