What Work is Taking Place? 

  • To accommodate the construction of the Eglinton Crosstown LRT, Enbridge Gas Distribution (Enbridge) is required to relocate a gas line on Eglinton Avenue East between Ionview Road and Kennedy Road. These pipelines are integral to Enbridge’s gas system and must be re-routed to ensure the safe and reliable delivery of natural gas to customers in the Greater Toronto Area.

Timing

  • Work will start as soon as early October 2016 and will last for approximately twelve weeks.
  • Work will occur between 7:00 a.m. and 5:30 p.m., Monday to Friday.
  • Work could be rescheduled due to weather conditions or unforeseen circumstances.

What to Expect

  • Every effort will be made to minimize any disruption to those in the area.
  • Residents and businesses near the work site can expect to hear noise caused by trucks, excavators, backhoes, and other construction equipment related to this work.

Traffic and Pedestrian Details

  • During construction hours, lane reductions or short-term road closures may be required on Eglinton Avenue East between Ionview Road and Kennedy Road. These roads will be reopened in the evening for local residents.
  • Please take care when travelling near construction areas. Watch for additional signs directing pedestrians as detours may be required.
  • Due to the current volume of traffic in this area, traffic delays are expected during construction.
  • Property access will be maintained.
  • Sidewalk access in the area could be affected. Please watch for signage directing pedestrian traffic.
  • As always, please take care when travelling near construction areas.
