What Work is Taking Place?

Crews continue demolition of the former TTC Bus Bay site at 2190 Yonge Street. To ensure the safety of pedestrians and the general public, the sidewalk on the south side of Eglinton Avenue between Duplex Avenue and Yonge Street will close temporarily during this phase of work.


  • The sidewalk closure will take place during the week of October 16-19, for approximately 1 day.
  • The work is expected to occur between the hours of 7:00 a.m. and 7:00 p.m., up to seven (7) days a week. Permitted hours are until 11:00 p.m.
  • The contractor may not always work during the permitted hours, but may do so at its discretion.
  • Occasional overnight work may be required – Metrolinx will notify the public in advance and monitor activities throughout.
  • Work is subject to permits and all relevant approvals, and may be rescheduled due to weather conditions or unforeseen circumstances.

What to Expect

  • Residents and businesses near demolition sites should anticipate noise from excavators, bobcats, and other construction equipment as well as dust caused by demolition activity and removal of debris. 
  • For safety purposes, temporary metal fencing will be installed around each demolition site, with spotters present at gates as required during working hours.

Traffic & Pedestrian Details

  • The south side sidewalk will be closed.  Pedestrians will be re-routed to the north side.
  • Road closures are not anticipated for demolition works.
  • Traffic control personnel will be present to manage the flow of truck traffic into the construction site.
