Subsurface Utility Engineering (SUE) Investigations Mount Pleasant Station

September 29, 2016

What Work is Taking Place?

  • To prepare for future construction of Mount Pleasant Station, crews will be conducting Subsurface Utility Engineering (SUE) investigations along Eglinton Avenue East and Mount Pleasant Road.
  • Crews will drill bore holes and use a hydro-vacuum truck within the roadway to determine the location of the underground utilities and the ground conditions around the intersection for design purposes. 

Hours of Work

  • SUE investigation began in late September and will take approximately two weeks to complete.
  • The work will be conducted Monday through Friday between the hours of 7:00 AM and 5:00 PM.
  • This work may be rescheduled due to weather or unforeseen circumstances.

What to Expect

  • Nearby residents and businesses can expect to see heavy trucks and equipment in the area as crews move from one test hole to the next.
  • While this work is underway, nearby residents and businesses can expect to hear some noise related to the use to a saw cutter, hydro-vacuum truck, drill, and other construction equipment.
  • A Paid Duty Officer will be present at the intersection during this activity.
