Upcoming Traffic Change at Chaplin Station

July 2019

As early as July 5, 2019, a new traffic configuration will be implemented at the intersection of Chaplin Crescent and Eglinton Avenue West.  Chaplin Cres is currently closed for traffic bridge installation.  Once the bridge is installed, Chaplin Cres will open, at traffic will be shifted west onto the bridge.  Additionally, traffic on Eglinton Ave W will be shifted north, so that crews can begin shallow excavation and roof construction of the south station box.  Traffic is expected to remain on the north side of Eglinton Ave W into 2020.  Please carefully review ‘What to Expect’.
