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

Crews continue building the LRT “guideway” — the transit-only lanes in the centre of the roadway, including tracks and passenger amenities

  • on Eglinton Avenue East between Ionview Road and Rosemount Drive,

near the site of the future Ionview stop.

From 7 a.m. until 7 p.m. Monday, June 3 and continuing daily, crews are

  • cutting and removing asphalt,
  • trenching and
  • installing street-light infrastructure

on the north side of this section of Eglinton East.

They’re working in stages to reduce disruption while they trench beside the roadway. Work zones may temporarily restrict traffic lanes and turns. “Paid-duty” Toronto Police Service officers and traffic-control personnel will direct motorists, cyclists and pedestrians near work zones.
