Gas Line Relocation for Headwall Construction of Bayview Station Starting the Week of July 21, 2014

juillet 21, 2014

What work is starting?

What: Enbridge will be relocating gas lines for the construction of the Crosstown tunnel and future Bayview Station.

Why: Headwalls are required to be in place prior to the arrival of tunnel boring machines at each of the stations and emergency exit building locations. Construction of the headwalls requires utilities to be moved safely out of the way before work begins. Depending on site conditions, gas, hydro, watermains, sewers, traffic street lighting and telephone lines may be relocated to allow for the construction of headwalls.

When: Starting on Monday, July 21, 2014, crews will begin to occupy a section of the roadway on Roehampton Avenue. The work zone will continue to shift as crews trench and install the new gas lines. Each road will be affected independently. It is expected the entire work will be completed in several months. Some work may be rescheduled due to weather conditions and unforeseen circumstances.

Where: Various side streets will experience rolling lane restrictions and short-term closures for installing new gas lines. The following roads will be affected in this order:

  • Roehampton Avenue
  • Bruce Park Avenue
  • Eglinton Avenue
  • Hoyle Avenue
  • Soudan Avenue
