Upcoming Concrete Pour at Allen Road and Eglinton Avenue West July 31, 2020

What Work Is Taking Place?

From Friday July 31 – Saturday August 1, 2020 crews at Cedarvale Station will perform a major concrete pour within the work zone on the north side of Eglinton Avenue, between Allen Road South and Park Hill Road. The concrete will form one of the permanent station structures underground.   

To perform this work safely, crews will be required to temporarily close the westbound lane on Eglinton Avenue between Allen Road South and Park Hill Road. Eglinton Avenue will be reduced to one lane in each direction, while the pour takes place. Two concrete pumps will be stationed inside the work zone during the pour. Traffic control personnel and/or a paid duty officer will be present, while this work takes place. 

To ensure the integrity and continuity of the pour, work will begin as early as 4:00 a.m. and take approximately thirty-two (32) hours to complete.  Crews will endeavour to minimize disruption as much as possible. 

What to Expect?

Overnight noise from construction equipment, including concrete trucks and pumps, can be expected. Site lighting is required and will be positioned away from residential properties. 5+ concrete trucks are expected per hour. Crews will endeavor to minimize disruption as much as possible. Expect delays when traveling through the intersection.
