Notice of Geotechnical Monitoring Work at Bayview Avenue and Eglinton Avenue East

What Work is Taking Place?

On Wednesday, June 17, 2020 geotechnical investigation work will begin at Bayview Avenue and Eglinton Avenue East. Using a saw cutter and hydro-vacuum truck, crews will remove the sidewalk concrete and expose utilities, to access the monitoring points underground.   

To facilitate this work, crews will be required to temporarily occupy the eastbound lane on Eglinton Avenue East, between Mann and Bayview Avenues, from 7:00 a.m. – 5:00 p.m. for approximately three (3) days. During this time, Eglinton Avenue East will be reduced to one lane only between Mann and Bayview Avenues, alternating traffic in each direction. Pedestrians will be rerouted around the work zone. Barriers will be used to delineate pedestrians from traffic and construction. Traffic control personnel and/or a paid duty officer will be present, while this work takes place. Crews will reopen the lane after each day of work and will endeavor to minimize disruption as much as possible.
