Watermain Lining & Valve Installations at Oakwood Station - September & October 2018

August 30, 2018


To increase the durability of local watermains during mining operations at Oakwood Station, sections in the vicinity of station construction zone will be lined. Lining of the watermain is a minimally invasive method of repair and rehabilitation that is commonly used throughout the City of Toronto. Using this process allows us to complete the work without excavating the entire watermain through the road.  As part of the watermain work, a number of valves will also be installed along Eglinton Avenue between Times Road and Alameda.



Week of September 4 to 7, daytime works 

  • Installation of temporary watermain on Oakwood Avenue just south of Eglinton Avenue
  • Lane reductions on Oakwood Avenue, south of Eglinton
  • TTC NB and SB stops will be moved slightly further south on September 5 & 6. 


Week of September 10 to 14, overnight work

  • Watermain valve works on Eglinton Avenue 
  • Lane closures on Eglinton Avenue between Times Road and Alameda Ave.

  • Work will occur between 7:00 a.m. and 11:00 p.m. as well as between 11:00 p.m. and 7:00 a.m.
