Metrolinx is building the Eglinton Crosstown, Toronto’s new 19-kilometre light rail transit (LRT) line that will run along Eglinton Avenue with a central 10 km underground section. The Crosstown will connect Mount Dennis in the west to Kennedy Road in the east, and the new service will be up to 60% faster than the bus service today. With 25 stations and stops and connections to 3 TTC subway stations, 54 local bus routes, 3 GO Transit lines and the UP Express, the Crosstown will improve travel times and change the way we move through the heart of the city.

Intersection Closure at Chaplin Station

What Work is Taking Place?


As early as October 31, crews will conduct a closure of Chaplin Crescent between Eglinton Avenue West and Spadina Road in order to complete piles and decking installation.  Due to the location of the piles at station headwall in the middle of the intersection, Chaplin Crescent must be closed to vehicular traffic while this work takes place, TTC and emergency vehicles excepted.  One lane of traffic on Eglinton Avenue West will be maintained in each direction.

This work will take approximately three (3) weeks to complete. Upon completion, a new traffic stage will be implemented.


  •  As early as October 31, 2018 for approximately three (3) weeks
  • 7:00 a.m. – 11:00 p.m., Monday through Sunday

Construction Staging

What to Expect

  • Chaplin Cres will be closed between Spadina Rd and Eglinton Ave W
