Getting Around on Eglinton

What should I expect during construction? 

It is not possible to expand transit along Eglinton Avenue without construction impacts, particularly during the station construction phase, happening from 2017 to 2021. We understand that sometimes people feel inconvenienced by these impacts, and we work to reduce them as much as possible, and ensure communities are given advanced notice. 

Construction updates and notices are posted on this website regularly, to ensure quick and easy access to information about current and upcoming periods of construction along the Crosstown corridor.  

Getting around during construction

During construction, your usual roues may not get you to your destination as quickly as you're used to. Here are some tips for getting around during construction.

Try cycling

Did you know that a 2km trip will take the average person only 10 minutes by bike? It’s also far cheaper than paying for parking.

CHECK CYCLING ROUTES: Where possible, cyclists should consider designated cycle routes and stay informed about construction updates

Try walking

A 2km trip will take the average person 20 minutes to walk, and can burn more than 100 calories for a short trip. Consider walking for some or your entire trip.
