What Work is Taking Place?
As part of Eglinton Crosstown LRT project, improvements to streetscape, cycle tracks and utility upgrades will be implemented at certain stations areas and stretches of Eglinton Avenue. The improvements have been designed in coordination with the City of Toronto’s planned Eglinton Connects Streetscape and Cycle Track Design and include street and sidewalk renewal and reconfiguration, sidewalk widening, designated cycle lanes, on-street parking, trees, and street furniture. For more information on the City’s Eglinton Connects Streetscape and Cycle Track Design, visit www.toronto.ca/eglinton.
The new streetscape and cycle track will be implemented continuously between Avenue Road and Holly Street. Construction will take place in phases, beginning with Phase 1 on the north and south sides of Eglinton Avenue from Duplex Avenue to Lascelles Blvd. starting in July 2020. Using traffic barrels, work zones will be erected along Eglinton Avenue. Using excavators, the existing roadway, sidewalk, and any street furniture will be removed. Excavated material will be loaded into dump trucks and hauled to an off-site facility. Once the road and sidewalk have been removed, wet and dry utility works will take place. Concrete and asphalt will be used to construct the new streetscape and cycle track.
Phase 1 will take approximately six (6) months to complete. Crews will work Monday through Saturday from 7:00 a.m. – 7:00 p.m. with overnight work as required. Eglinton Avenue streetscape and cycle track construction between Avenue Road and Lascelles Blvd. and in other areas within the Eglinton Crosstown LRT project scope will continue through 2021. Construction notices will be issued in advance of each phase of work.
Occasionally, use of a hydro-vacuum truck, jack hammer and/or compaction roller will be required. Property access will be maintained. Significant traffic and pedestrian changes will be in effect. Please review the complete notice or visit http://www.thecrosstown.ca/ for more information.
