August 29, 2017

The tunnelled section between Brentcliffe Road and Black Creek Drive is complete, and last year, construction activities began at all 15 underground stations including Kennedy Station. The preparatory works at the at-grade portion of the line, between Brentcliffe Road and Kennedy Station, also started this summer. Since the end of school, many work zones have been set up for construction and some major intersections along Eglinton Avenue have changed.

Pedestrian Information

Please cross the street at traffic lights or designated crossings. Crossing in the middle of a block can be dangerous. Pedestrian walkways will remain open where possible. Barriers will be used to separate the work zone from the traffic. During construction, some sidewalks will be closed for public safety. For your safety, please watch and obey additional signs re-directing pedestrians.  

Transit Stop Relocations

Relocation and re-routing of bus stops is done in consultation between TTC and Metrolinx to ensure construction can continue safely while minimizing impact on the community and customers. Both eastbound and westbound TTC bus stops in the construction zone will be relocated for the safety of the transit riders. Please watch for posted notices indicating the new locations. 

Please travel with extra caution and beware of your surroundings when travelling around or through construction and school zones. 

Thank you for your continued patience as we work to build this important project.
