What Work is Taking Place?


Crews will conduct six (6) consecutive closures of the intersection of Chaplin Crescent and Eglinton Avenue West over several weekends beginning Friday, July 6, 2018, in order to complete deep wet utilities relocation work in the middle of the intersection.  Through access on Chaplin Crescent will be closed.  Through access on Eglinton Avenue West will be maintained. This work will be completed in three phases (pictured below).

The work will be completed during permitted construction hours, 7:00 a.m. until 11:00 p.m. during each closure to minimize the number of closures required.  Access for emergency vehicles will be maintained.  At the end of each closure, the road will be plated and traffic will be restored overtop. 

Closures will begin at 8:00 p.m. on Fridays and end at 5:00 a.m. on Mondays.
