What Work is Taking Place?

As early as Monday February 24, 2020, crews will begin decommissioning monitoring wells across the alignment. The wells served as part of the Geotechnical Instrumentation and Monitoring Program (GIMP) during the tunneling phase of construction. Crews will be decommissioning wells as far west as Emmett Avenue and Eglinton Avenue West, and work their way as far east as Kennedy Road. The wells are divided into 10 zones. Some wells will require temporary lane reductions in the area. When a lane reduction is required, one lane will remain open, and two-way traffic will be controlled by traffic control personnel and Paid Duty Officers.


Zone One – Emmett Avenue to Black Creek Drive

Decommissioning one well will take approximately two hours. Upon completion, crews will move onto the next well, beginning at Emmett Avenue working their way east towards Black Creek Drive.
