In June 2019, crews will conduct two closures of Chaplin Crescent at Eglinton Avenue to install a temporary traffic bridge at the intersection.  During the closure, the traffic bridge will allow for continuous construction beneath the roadway, while traffic travels safely over top.  Once the bridge is installed, traffic on Chaplin Cres will be shift west onto the bridge. The bridge is expected to remain in place with no further traffic configuration changes until 2020.

Activities to be completed during the closure include, removal of concrete, construction of utility supports, lifting the bridge into place and paving. Overnight work is required to reduce the duration of each closure.  Work will be sequenced so that noisier activities are performed between 5:00 a.m. and 11:00 p.m.  TTC #14 Glencairn bus will be detoured while this work takes place.  Please carefully review the ‘Closure Details’ and ‘What to Expect’ below.
