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


From 9 a.m. until 3 p.m. Tuesday, January 29 and continuing daily, crews are installing two more valves on the local water main

  • on Eglinton Avenue West near Oriole Parkway and
  • on Eglinton Avenue West near Eastbourne Avenue,

near the site of the future Avenue Station.

The crews may also temporarily shut off water-service to nearby buildings to finalize the work.

During working hours, the contractors delineate the work zones with pylons and temporary fencing. They’ll plate and reinstate the roadway at the end of working hours each day.
