Eglinton Crosstown LRT - Mount Dennis: Overnight road closure, TTC detours, starting July 26



Eglinton Crosstown header.jpg

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


From 8 p.m. Monday, July 26 until 6 a.m. Tuesday, July 27 and continuing overnight nightly, the City of Toronto is closing

  • Eglinton Avenue West, westbound lanes, between Black Creek Drive and Weston Road

near the future Mount Dennis Station, so that contractors can install hydrants and connect “wet” utilities as part of the LRT project.

Overnight westbound traffic-lane closure and the resulting TTC detours continue until August 13 (6 a.m.)

(“Wet” utilities means water and sewer lines.)
