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


From 1 a.m. until 5 p.m. Thursday, November 8, crews are delivering and pouring cement to the site of the future Keelesdale Station. Concrete trucks will be arriving to the site from the east along Eglinton Avenue West and will stage in the westbound curb lane in front of the construction site.

The trucks enter and exit the work zone about every three to four minutes at two sites:

  1. the northwest corner of the intersection of Eglinton Avenue West with Trethewey Drive; and
  2. the northeast corner of the intersection of Eglinton Avenue West with Trethewey Drive.
