Eglinton Closed at Dufferin Street for Weekend Construction

March 7th - 10th and March 14th - 17th, 2014

The Eglinton Crosstown is a transit project that will provide rapid and reliable service across Eglinton Avenue including an underground central section and will be up to 60% faster than bus service today.

What:  Installation of piles for the building of the station headwalls in the centre of the Eglinton Avenue will require two full road closures of Eglinton Avenue West at Dufferin Street.

This work is required for the construction of the east and west headwalls for the future Dufferin Station and in preparation for the approaching tunnel boring machines from Black Creek Drive.
