From Monday June 22 – Wednesday June 24, 2020, the final sections of the scaffolding will be removed at Eglinton Junior Public School (223 Eglinton Avenue East). Crews will manually remove and load the scaffolding materials into a boom truck. The removed materials will then be hauled to an off-site facility. After the scaffolding is removed, crews will use a power washer to clean the exterior of the school. No scaffolding will remain on the school or sidewalk once this work is complete.

To complete this work safely, crews will be required to temporarily close the south sidewalk on Eglinton Avenue East between Brownlow Avenue and Mount Pleasant Road. Work is expected to take place from 7:00 a.m. – 5:00 p.m. During this time, short-term lane interruptions can be expected on Eglinton Avenue, as crews load the removed materials into the boom truck. Traffic control personnel and/or a paid duty officer will be present, while this work takes place. Crews will reopen the sidewalk after each day of work.
