What Work is Taking Place?

  • Support of excavation (shoring) for the new Eglinton station will require closure of the underground pedestrian tunnels at Yonge Street and Eglinton Avenue leading from the Eglinton TTC subway station (pictured below). Tunnel closures will correspond to different phases of the construction work. 


  • The east and north underground pedestrian tunnels are to be closed as early as late-February 2017. They will remain closed until Fall 2021.
  • The west underground pedestrian tunnel leading from the concourse level of the Eglinton subway station to RioCan’s Yonge-Eglinton centre is to be closed as early as Summer 2017. It will remain closed until Fall 2021.

What to Expect

  • Increased pedestrian traffic above and below ground.
  • All access to businesses will be maintained.
