What is the Crosstown?

 The Eglinton Crosstown is a 19-kilometre light rail transit (LRT) line that will run along Eglinton Avenue through the heart of Toronto, with an underground central section. The line will connect Mount Dennis in the west to Kennedy Road in the east, and the new service will be up to 60% faster than the bus service today.

Short Term Lane Closures along Eglinton Avenue
for Overnight Monitoring Equipment Installation
for Oakwood Station

 

 

What Work is Taking Place?

  • Crews will be installing ground movement monitoring equipment at Oakwood station. These monitors will provide information on ground conditions during station construction. 

Timing

  • The installations began at the end of May 2016 and work will continue during the month of June.
  •  Each monitoring point installation process may up take up to a few days within the roadway. Some work may be rescheduled due to weather.
  • To minimize traffic disruptions the hours of work are 11 pm. to 7 a.m.

 

What to Expect

  • This equipment will be installed within roadways and sidewalks along the right-of-way on Eglinton Avenue.
  • Nearby residents and businesses can expect to hear noise related to drilling, saw-cutting, hydro-vaccing, and the use of heavy equipment.

 

Traffic Details 

  • During the work, traffic lanes may be reduced. Short term lane closures will allow the crews to perform their work safely. Some lane closures may be left in place overnight for a few days.
  •  Parking spaces may be impacted depending on the location of the installation. Protection is set-up around the work area, which may require a few spots at a time.
  • As always, please take care when travelling near work sites.

 

Pedestrians

  • To ensure safety, pedestrian detours may be required during this phase of construction.

 

Driveways

  • The construction may temporarily block driveways.

 

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

Please support your local businesses during construction.
