What Work is Taking Place?

In support of construction of the future Kennedy Station, crews will be installing new traffic signals 160m east of Kennedy Road and Eglinton Avenue East.

Crews will install temporary traffic poles at each corner of the North Service Road, east of Kennedy Road, and then hang cables and new temporary traffic signals between the poles. Following installation, the temporary signals will be tested.

Once testing is complete the new temporary traffic signals will come into effect.
