When: Crews will begin work as early as Tuesday August 25, 2015. It is expected that this work will be completed during business hours over the span of two days. Work could be rescheduled due to weather conditions or unforeseen circumstances.

Where: The road closure will be at the south end of Gilgorm Road. The north portion of the road will be converted into a temporary two-way street to accommodate local traffic. When work is complete, the road will be returned to a one-way street.

Why: To accommodate the construction of the new Eglinton Crosstown Chaplin station, Enbridge is required to relocate natural gas pipelines. These pipelines are integral to Enbridge’s gas system and must be re-routed to ensure the safe and reliable delivery of natural gas to customers.
