Overnight Beam Removal and Fencing Relocation at Leaside Station

July 10, 2020

 

What Work is Taking Place?
From Monday July 13, 2020 – Friday July 25, 2020 crews at Leaside Station will work overnight to remove the steel beams beneath the road decking at the southeast corner of Bayview Avenue and Eglinton Avenue East. Crews will cut open the decking and remove the beams using a small crane. During this work, the construction fencing along the sidewalk will be permanently relocated further north, to accommodate station construction underground.

To perform these works safely, crews will be required to temporarily occupy the eastbound lane on Eglinton Avenue East, east of Bayview Avenue. Eglinton Avenue East will be reduced to one lane only, alternating traffic in each direction, while this work takes place. Work will take place Monday to Friday between 8:00 p.m. – 6:00 a.m. Traffic control personnel and/or a paid-duty officer will be present, while this work takes place. Crews will endeavor to minimize disruption as much as possible.
