What Work Is Happening?

  • In preparation for building Eglinton Station, many utilities must be relocated to allow for support of excavation. To support the relocation of Toronto Hydro-Electric System, crews will be digging trenches to install new duct banks and relocating the existing services. The first phase of this work began along Roehampton Avenue, moving south on Redpath Avenue to Eglinton Avenue early in January 2017.
  • The next phase of this work is the relocation of Toronto Hydro duct banks along Eglinton Avenue East from Yonge Street to Holly Street (depicted in the image below).
Timing
  • Work on Eglinton Avenue from Yonge Street to Holly Street will begin as early as February 13th. 
  • Work is permitted to occur between the hours of 7:00 a.m. and 7:00 p.m., Monday to Friday and from 9:00 a.m. and 7:00 p.m. on weekends.
  • The contractor may not always work during the permitted hours, but may do so at its discretion.
  • Work is subject to permits and all relevant approvals, and may be rescheduled due to weather conditions or unforeseen circumstances.

What to Expect
  • Equipment and work trucks will be present along Roehampton Avenue, Redpath Avenue, and Eglinton Avenue as crews dig the trench for the new hydro-electric duct banks.
  • There will be a temporary sidewalk closure on the south side of Eglinton Avenue from Yonge Street to Cowbell Lane.
  • Temporary lane reductions will be required to carry out the work.
  • Nearby residents and businesses can expect to hear noise related to drilling, saw-cutting, vacuum trucks, and the use of heavy equipment.
