Eglinton Crosstown LRT - Surface section:
Utility relocation, Birchmount to Warden

Eglinton Crosstown header.jpg

Metrolinx contractors continue building the future Eglinton Crosstown light rail transit line between Mount Dennis and Kennedy.

Starting “as early as” Monday, September 24, crews are relocating “wet” utilities — water- and sewer-mains —

  • on Eglinton Avenue East between Birchmount Road and Warden Avenue.

The work supports construction of the LRT “guideway” — the transit-only lanes in the centre of the roadway, including tracks and passenger amenities — between the future Birchmount and Golden Mile stops.

Crews work Mondays to Fridays from 7 a.m. until 11 p.m. They’re installing new pipes and replacing manholes and catch basins to support upgrading water infrastructure for the future Crosstown surface stops.

Work zones may restrict traffic in the curb lanes of the roadway. At least two traffic lanes in each direction will be available to motorists. Motorists may continue turning left at all intersections. However, left turns into commercial properties may no longer be available during this phase of the project. Temporary sidewalks will be available to pedestrians, when necessary.

Expect noise from trucks, excavators, backhoes, a pile drill, drill rig, crane, concrete trucks and other construction equipment. Crews may produce dust when drilling and removing debris. Also expect heavy traffic from trucks entering and exiting the work zone.

The TTC may temporarily relocate bus stops. Passengers aboard buses along these routes can also expect delays:

  • 34 Eglinton East; and
  • 334 Eglinton East overnight.

“Wet”-utility relocation between Birchmount Road and Warden Avenue and the resulting TTC delays continue “approximately three (3) weeks” or until October 12.
