WHAT WORK IS TAKING PLACE?

Throughout 2019, Eglinton Crosstown LRT construction will require temporary changes to intersection operations from Credit Union to Ionview for road paving and guideway construction. This work is required for the construction of the Crosstown LRT tracks and guideway (dedicated transit lane) in the centre of Eglinton Avenue East.

Road widening and paving on the south side of the Eglinton Avenue East and Bermondsey Road intersection has been underway since mid-April, 2019. As early as June 1, 2019, the work zone will shift to the north side of the intersection and Sloane Avenue will be closed at Eglinton Avenue East. There will be no access from Eglinton to Sloane, Sloane to Eglinton or Bermondsey to Sloane for approximately six (6) weeks.
