Bathurst and Eglinton Overnight Intersection Closure - August 23 & 24, 2019

août 1, 2019

What Work is Taking Place?

The intersection of Bathurst Street and Eglinton Avenue West will be closed while crews complete a large concrete pour at Forest Hill Station. The concrete will form part of the future roof of the station.  The closure will take place on Friday, August 23, 2019 and continue into the following day.  The concrete pour will take approximately 18 hours to complete. Once the work is complete, the intersection will re-open. 

To ensure the continuity of the pour, and to minimize the impact to the travelling public, the closure will be conducted overnight when traffic is lighter.  Significant traffic restrictions, including TTC detours, will be in effect during this closure. Please review the traffic details below. 

  • Friday, August 23, 2019 beginning at 8:00 p.m. for approximately 18 hours (overnight)
  • These activities are weather-dependent and may be delayed or rescheduled due to inclement weather.
