What Work is Taking Place?

As part of utility relocation and bridge rehabilitation works, new traffic staging was implemented between the Don Valley Parkway off-ramps and Wynford Drive early November, 2018.

An update to pedestrian routes will take effect as early as Wednesday, November 28th, 2018. The north-south crossing that was temporarily installed at Wynford Drive will be removed. The nearest pedestrian crossing will be located at the Don Valley Parkway North ramp. 

All works are in support of the construction of the Crosstown LRT tracks and guideway (dedicated transit lane) in the center of Eglinton Avenue East.

Timing

  • Starting as early as November 28, 2018 and lasting for approximately six (6) months.
  • Work may occur between the hours of 7:00 AM and 11:00 PM, seven (7) days a week.
  • The contractor may not always work during the permitted hours, but may do so at its discretion.
  • Updates on works taking place during overnight periods will be communicated separately.
  • Work may be rescheduled due to weather conditions or unforeseen circumstances.

What to Expect

  • A generator will be onsite to facilitate site services. It may run continuously, including overnight between 11 p.m. and 7 a.m. for the next six (6) months.
  • Access to businesses and properties will be maintained.
  • Pedestrians and road users can expect delays when travelling through the work zone.
  • As always, please take care when travelling near work sites.

Pedestrian Impacts

  • The pedestrian staircase on the south side of the Wynford Drive Bridge will be closed for the duration of the work. 
  • Pedestrians will be required to travel to the Don Valley Parkway north ramp intersection to cross Eglinton Avenue East.
  • Pedestrian rerouting around work zones is done to protect the safety of pedestrians. Detours will be clearly marked with signage to direct pedestrians to the alternate routes.

TTC Impacts

  • The eastbound TTC bus stop located on southwest side of the Wynford Bridge will be removed for the duration of the work (approximately 6 months).
  • The eastbound TTC bus stop located on the southwest side of the Don Valley Parkway North Off-Ramp will be shifted east of the intersection for the first stage of this configuration.
  • Relocation and re-routing of bus stops is done in consultation with the TTC to ensure construction can continue safely while minimizing impact on the community and customers.
