avril 23, 2020


What Work is Taking Place?

From late April to late May 2020, short-term lane reductions will take place on Eglinton Avenue East at Mount Pleasant Road to facilitate soil backfill and utility restoration work. Lane reductions will take place intermittently between 7:00 a.m. – 7:00 p.m. for a maximum duration of one (1) hour. During this time, Eglinton Avenue East will be reduced to one shared lane only, as trucks backfill soil into the work zone.
