What Work is Taking Place?

Crews will be pouring concrete to continue building the roof slabs for the Brentcliffe Portal. Work will be conducted within the existing work zone located on Eglinton Avenue East between Brentcliffe Road and Leslie Street.

Hours of Work

  • Due to the large size of the concrete pours, work will start as early as Tuesday, June 12th, 2018, beginning at 6:00 a.m. and will take approximately 11 hours to complete.

What to Expect

  • Nearby residents and businesses can expect noise in the area caused by fans, loaders, trucks, concrete pumps, and other construction equipment.
  • Truck traffic entering and exiting the work zone on a continuous basis.
  • Trucks a will use white noise/broadband back-up alarms. Broadband back-up alarms, unlike traditional truck back-up alarms, are only heard within the work zone area.

Traffic and Pedestrian Impacts

  • Trucks will access the work zone from the west side of the portal at Brentcliffe Road and exit from the east side, west of Leslie Street.
  • Existing traffic and pedestrian staging will remain in effect. A minimum of one lane of traffic in each direction between Brentcliffe Road and Leslie Street will be maintained.
