Immediate Sewer Repair on Eglinton at Oakwood

March 14, 2014

The Eglinton Crosstown is a transit project that will provide rapid and reliable service across Eglinton Avenue including an underground central section and will be up to 60% faster than bus service today.

What: Crews will be repairing a small section of City of Toronto sewer adjacent to the sidewalk on Eglinton Ave, west of Oakwood Ave for several weeks.
Where: The work zone will extend approximately west of Oakwood Ave to approximately Times Rd.   The current construction zone on the south side of Eglinton Avenue West will remain for the on –going headwall construction. Barriers will be used to separate the work zone from the traffic.

When: Starting as early as March 17th, 2014, crews will begin setting up the area for repairs of the sewer. The work zone currently on the west side of Oakwood Avenue will expand and fencing will be placed on the sidewalk to encompass and allow for work on the sewer from the south west corner at Eglinton and Oakwood Ave to approximately 1631 Eglinton Ave for several weeks. Crews will continue to occupy the roadway for this repair as well.

Traffic Details

During these repairs, the work zone will allow for pedestrians along the south sidewalk of the Eglinton Ave. On occasion, temporary closures of the sidewalk may be needed at which time a flagman will redirect pedestrians.  Access from Eglinton Avenue into the Toronto Green Parking lot at 1607 Eglinton Ave and The HUB parking lot will be prohibited and vehicles will need to enter from Lanark Ave.

Lanark Avenue between the entrance of Toronto Green Parking lot and Oakwood Avenue will continue to temporarily allow two-way traffic for easy access in and out of the parking lots. 

Traffic on Eglinton Avenue will remain as one lane in each direction near at Oakwood Avenue. Please take care when travelling near construction areas. Pedestrian walkways will remain open but may be closed temporarily for short intervals. Every effort will be made to maintain  front door entrances of businesses and residents. Please watch for additional signs directing pedestrians.
