What Work is Taking Place?

As early as Thursday July 9, 2020, crews at Cedarvale Station will begin working extended hours to facilitate construction of the permanent pedestrian tunnels underground. The tunnels will connect the existing TTC Eglinton West Station to the new Cedarvale LRT Station. Work will take place inside the work zones surrounding Eglinton West Station, including the station’s closed bus loop. Trucks will stage within the work zones and laydown area off Allen Road South.

To accelerate construction, crews will work extended hours Monday – Saturday from 6:00 a.m. – 2:00 a.m. for approximately seven (7) months. During this time, noise from construction activities, including excavation, concrete works, welding, and material loading can be expected. To minimize disruption, hauling activities will take place between 6:00 a.m. – 11:00 p.m. only.
