Eglinton Crosstown LRT - Mount Pleasant:
Hydro and water-main work, traffic changes



Eglinton Crosstown header.jpg

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


Starting “late July”, crews reconnect water mains and connect hydro services near the site of the future Mount Pleasant Station.


In “late July” (possibly, starting Wednesday, July 24), crews are reconnecting water mains as part of the project. Crews mostly work in the current work zones, but may occasionally on the streets, temporarily blocking traffic lanes. They may also temporarily shut off the water supply to nearby properties.

(Crews previously disconnected the mains during an earlier phase of the project.)

Reconnecting water mains near the future Mount Pleasant Station and the resulting TTC delays continue “for approximately two (2) weeks” or until about August 11.
