What Work Is Taking Place?

In Fall 2018, the area around Eglinton West Subway Station (Cedarvale) will see another round of changes.  Pedestrian routes to the station will be rerouted and traffic lanes will shift.

Hours of Work

  • The new stage will start as early as October 15th, 2018 for approximately 4-5 months.
  • Shoring work can be expected between the hours of 7 a.m. and 11 p.m., 7 days a week. (Work outside these hours may be required for other construction activities. This information will be communicated separately.)
  • Work may be delayed due to weather conditions or unforeseen circumstances.

Phase 3: North Station Box

  • Supporting the excavation of the new Eglinton LRT Cedarvale Station Main Entrance requires piling activity in front of the TTC Eglinton West Subway Station. Changes to station access will allow this work to proceed safely by separating the work zone from transit users and road users.
  • The work zone currently situated at the corner of the police parking lot at Everden Road will remain in place.

What to Expect

  • Nearby residents and businesses can expect noise in the area caused by a pile drill, crane, loaders, trucks and other construction equipment, as well as dust from drilling activity and debris removal.
  • Heavy truck traffic entering and exiting the work zone.
  • There will be noise and vibration associated with shoring activities.
  • In addition to construction activity, residents can expect to see equipment and material storage within designated work zones.
