What Work is Taking Place? 

Since fall 2016, crews have been conducting support of excavation work (also known as shoring) at the Main Entrance and Service Building sites of the future Fairbank Station.  In the spring, crews began shoring of the station box, as well as wet utilities relocation, on the north side of Eglinton Avenue West.

On November 3, new temporary traffic changes will be implemented at Dufferin Street and Eglinton Avenue West, to make way for support of excavation activities at the Secondary Entrance and northwest corner of the intersection. Shoring in the roadway will be completed in several stages.  This stage will take approximately four (4) weeks to complete.
