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


Starting “as early as” Tuesday, November 13, crews are rearranging the work zones, changing how traffic flows

  • through the intersection of Eglinton Avenue East with Bayview Avenue,

near the site of the future Leaside Station.

“Paid-duty” Toronto Police Service officers and traffic-control personnel will be on site to help direct traffic and pedestrians.

Crews work 7 a.m. until 11 p.m., seven days a week.

This phase of the project near the future Leaside Station continues until December 31. Expect pedestrian and traffic routes to change several times until then.
