Upcoming Changes to Pedestrian Routes at Forest Hill Station – March to August 2020

March 19, 2020

What Work is Taking Place?

In spring 2020, crews will begin installation of beams, structural steel and panels at the Forest Hill Station Secondary Entrance, located on the north side of Eglinton Avenue, west of Bathurst Street.  To accommodate this next phase of construction, pedestrians must be routed north of the Secondary Entrance to the Hilltop-Bathurst laneway.  This configuration is expected to remain in place for approximately six (6) months.  Property access will be maintained.

Hours of Work 


  • As early as March 2020 for approximately six (6) months
  • The pedestrian configuration may remain in place longer or shorter than expected
  • Construction takes place between 6:00 a.m. – 4:00 a.m., Monday – Saturday
