Crosstown

Re-location of Temporary Pedestrian Walkways

June 3, 2015

What:  Metrolinx will be working to relocate major telecommunications infrastructure currently located beneath the west construction site and the north/south pedestrian walkway located on the west side of Allen Road. 

Where:  The initial work zone will be extended north along the pedestrian pathway from Eglinton Avenue West north to Whitmore Avenue. 

When:  Work is expected to start as early as June 8, 2015, and is expected to last until January 2016.  Please note that construction schedules can be affected by weather and unforeseen circumstances. 

Re-location of Temporary Pedestrian Walkways

The current temporary pedestrian walkways allowing access to Eglinton West subway station will be shifted south from its current location and separated from traffic with protective barricades and fencing.  Please look out for additional signage directing pedestrians around the worksite to and from the subway.

Changing Traffic Patterns 

Traffic will remain the same on both the north and south sides of Eglinton Avenue West. Traffic will continue to be reduced to one lane in each direction at this location during the proposed work period.

Due to the current volume of traffic in this area, traffic delays should be expected in this area during construction and additional travel time should be included when planning a commute. 

Please take care when travelling near construction areas as pedestrian walkways will remain open. 

Work Hours

The majority of work during this phase will occur between 7 a.m. and 11 p.m., seven days a week.
