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


From 4 a.m. until 4 p.m. Thursday, February 28, crews are delivering and pouring cement to support construction of the portal into the underground Kennedy LRT Station

  • on Eglinton Avenue East between Ionview Road and Kennedy Road

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 Kennedy and Ionview stops.

Crews have already set up concrete jersey barriers, creating a traffic-free work zone in the centre lanes of Eglinton East.

Concrete trucks enter and exit from the work zone west of Ionview Road about every three to four minutes. They enter and leave the site at two locations:

  • westbound along Eglinton to Ionview Road, then parking in the center lanes of Eglinton west of Ionview; and then
  • eastbound along Eglinton Avenue in the curb lane to enter through a gap in the jersey barriers in front of 2361 Eglinton Avenue East.
