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.  

Traffic Light Works at Avenue Station 

What Work is Taking Place?

Pending City of Toronto approval to prepare for the start of construction at the future Avenue Station, crews will install a temporary traffic signal for pedestrian crossing west of Braemar Avenue. Once shoring begins, the north/south crossing of Eglinton Avenue West at Avenue Road will be closed and the new temporary crossing will facilitate pedestrian movement in the area. Crews will also relocate a traffic light pole at the northwest corner of Eglinton Avenue West and Avenue Road.
