Preparatory Road Works on Eglinton Avenue East for Surface Stops

The surface section of the Eglinton Crosstown LRT will run down the centre of Eglinton Avenue East in dedicated transit lanes at street level. To prepare for the construction of the surface section, crews are working to get the roadway ready.

Setting up the construction work zones in the roadway will require changes to how car and truck, bus, and pedestrian traffic flows along Eglinton Avenue East and the associated intersections where future stops will be located. 

Lane reductions will be required. New turning restrictions may be implemented at intersections along Eglinton and other nearby intersections. Pedestrians may be rerouted through temporary pedestrian walkways. Additionally, TTC bus stops may be relocated to ensure the safety of passengers accessing transit is maintained.

What Work is Taking Place? 

  • Crews will be conducting preparatory work in the roadway to prepare Eglinton and nearby roads for the future changes.

Timing

  • Work may begin as early as June 2017.
  • Work may be rescheduled due to weather conditions or unforeseen circumstances.

What to Expect

  • Nearby residents and businesses can expect to hear noise related to drilling, saw-cutting, and the use of heavy equipment.
  • Paid Duty Police Officers will be present when work is in close proximity to intersections.
