For transit passengers:

  • The TTC may temporarily further relocate bus stops near the work zone. Passengers aboard buses along these routes can also expect delays:
  • 25 Don Mills;
  • 34 Eglinton East;
  • 100 Flemingdon Park;
  • 325 Don Mills overnight;
  • 334 Eglinton East overnight;
  • 403 South Don Mills community bus; and
  • 925 Don Mills express.

For pedestrians:

  • The north-south crosswalk on the east and west sides of the intersection are reopening during this phase of the project.
  • The east-west crosswalks on the north and south sides of the intersection remain open.
  • The south sidewalk on Eglinton East west of Don Mills remains closed.
  • Expect further temporary detours around work zones, with signs clearly directing you to alternate routes.

For motorists:

  • At least two traffic lanes in each direction will be available at all times.
  • Eastbound motorists on Eglinton cannot turn left onto northbound Don Mills.
  • While crews are setting up the new traffic lanes, southbound motorists on Don Mills cannot turn left onto Rochefort Drive.
  • After crews have finished setting up the new traffic lanes, southbound motorists on Don Mills can again turn left onto Rochefort, except Mondays to Fridays during rush hours. (7 until 9 a.m.; 4 until 6 p.m.)
  • As crews are setting up the new traffic lanes, they may also temporarily block other lanes so that they can work safely.

Crews are setting up the new traffic lanes until 6 a.m. October 11. The new work zones and traffic lanes — and the resulting TTC delays — continue “for approximately four (4) months” or until February 15, 2019. Until then, crews work daily from 7 a.m. until 5 p.m. to support future excavation and to relocate utilities.
