What Work is Taking Place?

Crews have been completing overnight wet utility and hydro utility installation work at Forest Hill Station since September 2018.  This work will continue through December 30, 2018.  By the end of 2018, 95% of all utilities relocation and installation work will have been completed at Forest Hill Station.

Currently, crews are working in the vicinity of Peveril Hill Road and Eglinton Avenue W. Trucks will access the site via Peveril Hill Road N.  Work will continue to move throughout the station area. Due to the location of these activities, in the roadway, Eglinton Avenue West may be reduced to one lane only between Hilltop Road and Old Forest Hill Road, while this work takes place.  Traffic control personnel will be used to alternate traffic in each direction.

While crews will endeavour to minimize disruption as best as possible, some noise can be expected.
