Timing

Work will be undertaken as needed, beginning as early as late January 2017 for approximately six months. Work is expected to take place between 9:00 p.m. and 11:00 p.m. Please note that work may be rescheduled due to weather conditions or unforeseen circumstances.

What to Expect

  • Crews will be taking data readings from instruments previously installed as part of geotechnical investigations to determine soil and water conditions along Eglinton Avenue East.
  • Temporary occasional lane closures are necessary between Brentcliffe Road and Leslie Street to complete this work.
  • The work is being performed at night to minimize impacts to traffic.

Traffic and Pedestrian Impacts

  • Traffic will be reduced to a single lane for both directions of traffic on Eglinton Avenue between Brentcliffe Road and Leslie Street for the duration of this work. 
  • Eastbound and westbound traffic will alternately use the one lane. Flag persons will be onsite directing traffic during the hours of work.
  • Pedestrian and property access will be maintained.
  • As always, please take care when travelling near work sites. Traffic delays are expected during construction.
