October 14, 2016

What Work is Taking Place?

To support construction of the future Science Centre Station, work will commence to widen sections of Eglinton Avenue East from west of Don Mills Road to the Don Valley Parkway. 

Work zones will occupy the eastbound and westbound curbside Eglinton lanes from Don Mills to DVP

Timing

  • Work will begin as early as October 17, 2016 and last for approximately three months.
  • The work is expected to occur between the hours of 7:00 a.m. and 7:00 p.m., up to seven (7) days a week. Permitted hours are until 11:00 p.m.
  • Occasional overnight work may be required. Metrolinx will notify the public in advance and monitor activities throughout. Work may be rescheduled due to weather conditions or unforeseen circumstances.

What to Expect

  • Residents and businesses near construction sites should anticipate noise from excavators, bobcats, vacuum trucks and other construction equipment during this work.

Pedestrian Impacts

  • The sidewalk on the north side of Eglinton Ave. E. will be closed from Leslie Street to Don Mills Road and from Gervais Drive to the southbound Don Valley Parkway off ramp. For safety purposes, pedestrians will be redirected to the sidewalk on the south side of Eglinton Avenue East.
  • Pedestrians travelling between Don Mills Road and the Don Valley Parkway will be rerouted slightly south of Eglinton Avenue East. Pedestrian detours will be clearly marked with signage directing pedestrians to the alternate routes.
