What to Expect

  • New pipes, manholes and catch basins will be installed between Victoria Park Avenue and Eglinton Square on the south side of Eglinton Avenue East. The work will be performed within a protected work zone.

  • Pedestrians and road users can expect delays when travelling through the work zone.
  • Property access will be maintained.
