WHAT WORK IS TAKING PLACE?

Work on the Wilson Brook Culvert has been underway since late August 2018 on Eglinton Avenue East. Crews are building a temporary storm drain line, as well as excavating and replacing the storm water culvert under Eglinton Ave East. 

As work progresses, two new traffic configurations will be implemented (depicted below). The first stage will be implemented as early as February 8th, 2019 for up to two (2) weeks and the second stage will then be in place for up to ten (10) weeks.

Due to variable weather conditions and to support the continued progress on the Wilson Brook Culvert works, a generator will be onsite to operate a water pumping system to remove accumulated precipitation from the construction zone. It may run continuously, including overnight between 11 p.m. and 7 a.m. as required based on weather conditions.
