What Work is Taking Place?

To support the continued construction of the future Leaside Station, a new traffic configuration (depicted below) will be implemented mid-January 2020 at the Eglinton Avenue East and Bayview Avenue intersection. The new traffic stage will accommodate deep excavation and hauling, concrete works, material deliveries and permanent works.

  • Construction may occur between the hours of 5:00 a.m. and 11:00 p.m., seven (7) days a week.
  • This work may be delayed or rescheduled due to inclement weather or unforeseen circumstance.

What to Expect

  • Noise, lighting and traffic delays can be expected for the duration of this stage.
  • Equipment and material storage within the work zone.
  • Construction vehicles entering and exiting the work zone.
  • Property access will be maintained.
  • Fencing and concrete barriers will be installed around the work zone.
  • Pedestrians and motorists can expect delays while moving through the intersection.
