Starting as early as May 6, 2019 and lasting for approximately two (2) weeks, crews will be temporarily relocating hydro infrastructure in and around the Kennedy Station site. In order to facilitate this work, there will be lane restrictions on the East Service Road in close proximity to 2467 Eglinton Avenue East-Don Montgomery Centre.
