Updated: Early Morning Concrete Pours at the Brentcliffe Portal in December 2017

December 7, 2017

What Work is Taking Place?

Crews will be pouring the concrete foundation and roof slabs for the Brentcliffe Portal. Work will be conducted within the existing work zone located on Eglinton Avenue East between Brentcliffe Road and Leslie Street. Due to the large size of these concrete pours, work will start at 4:00 a.m. in order to reduce impact to traffic in the area.

Hours of Work

  • The first pour is scheduled for Tuesday, December 12 at 4:00 a.m. and is expected to take approximately 15 hours to complete. 
  • The second pour is scheduled for Saturday, December 16 at 6:00 a.m. and is expected to take approximately 13 hours to complete.
  • A third pour is tentatively scheduled for Tuesday, December 19 at 4:00 a.m. and is expected to take approximately 13 hours to complete.
  • Additional pours may be scheduled in the future and will be communicated separately.
  • Work may be rescheduled due to weather conditions or unforeseen circumstances.

Hours of Work

  • Nearby residents and businesses can expect noise in the area caused by loaders, trucks concrete pumps, and other construction equipment. 
  • Truck traffic entering and exiting the work zone (approximately 7 trucks per hour).
  • Trucks a will use white noise/broadband back-up alarms. Broadband back-up alarms, unlike traditional truck back-up alarms, are only heard within the work zone area. 

Traffic and Pedestrian Impacts

  • Trucks will access the work zone from the west side of the portal at Brentcliffe Road and exit from the east side, west of Leslie Street.
  • Existing traffic and pedestrian staging will remain in effect. A minimum of one lane of traffic in each direction between Brentcliffe Road and Leslie Street will be maintained.
