Upcoming Traffic Change at Mount Pleasant Station

Wednesday, November 6, 2019

What Work is Taking Place? 

As early as Wednesday November 6, a new traffic configuration will be implemented at Mount Pleasant Station. Traffic on Mt Pleasant Rd will be shifted to the east side, and traffic on Eglinton Ave W will remain on the south. The north-south crosswalk on the west side of Eglinton Ave W will be closed, and the crosswalk on the east side will be reinstated. East of the intersection, pedestrians will be rerouted around the south side of the work zone. Concrete barriers will be implemented to delineate pedestrians from construction and street traffic. To mitigate traffic delays, the traffic change will take place during off-peak hours. Access to TTC and emergency response vehicles will be maintained at all times.

This configuration will be in place for approximately (5) months until early April 2020. During this stage, construction will return to the west side of Mt Pleasant Rd, and shallow excavation and roof construction will continue. Once this stage is complete, traffic will shift to the north on Eglinton Ave W and a new traffic stage will be implemented.
