WHAT WORK IS TAKING PLACE?

In late October, crews began wet utilities relocation in the vicinity of Dufferin Street and Eglinton Avenue West to make way for support of excavation (shoring) activities on the north and south sides of Eglinton Avenue West.  

Work on the combined sewer is continuing and requires additional short-term lane occupancy on Eglinton Ave and Dufferin St.  

To minimize the impact to traffic, this work will take place overnight. Traffic on Eglinton Avenue West and Dufferin Street will be reduced to one lane only while this work takes place.

HOURS OF WORK

Overnight work will take place between 7:00 p.m. and 5:00 a.m. on the following dates:

  • February 22 – 23, 2018
  • February 26 – March 2, 2018
  • March 5 – 7, 2018

WHAT TO EXPECT

  • Lane reductions on Eglinton Avenue West and Dufferin Street will be required.
  • Noise from construction activity as well as site lighting can be expected.
  • Pedestrians and vehicle traffic can expect delays when traveling through the intersection.

TRAFFIC AND PEDESTRIAN IMPACTS

  • Traffic on Eglinton Avenue West and Dufferin Street will be reduced to one lane only with traffic alternating in each direction controlled by a Paid Duty Officer or flag person.
