What Work is Taking Place?

  • To prepare for future construction, crews will be conducting Subsurface Utility Investigation work along Eglinton Avenue East between Kennedy Road and Pharmacy Avenue.

  • Once the work is complete, roads will be backfilled and restored accordingly.


  • Work will begin as early as Wednesday, February 1, 2017 and is expected to last two to three (2-3) days.
  • Work will occur between 8:00 AM and 4:00 PM.
  • Work may be rescheduled due to weather conditions 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 bore hole to the next.
  • Nearby residents and businesses can expect to hear noise related to the use of saw cutters, hydro-vacuum trucks, drills, and other construction equipment.

Traffic and Pedestrian Details

  • There will be intermittent sidewalk and lane closures between Kennedy Road and Pharmacy Avenue.
