WHAT WORK IS TAKING PLACE?

  • As part of the ongoing construction works for the future Avenue Station, readings from above ground and in-ground monitoring points will take place frequently in the vicinity of Eglinton Ave and Avenue Road.
  • Monitoring points are located on Eglinton Avenue from Lascelles Blvd to Braemar Ave. and on Avenue Road from Burnaby Blvd. to south of Eglinton Ave.
  • Installation of a number of in ground monitoring instruments also continues.

TIMING

  • The installations and readings will occur periodically for duration of the project.
  • For installation work, occupancy of the roadway is permitted between 9am to 4pm on arterial roads and 7am-8pm on local roads.
  • Readings that require lane closures are not permitted from 7am to 9am or from 4pm to 6pm.

WHAT TO EXPECT & TRAFFIC AND PEDESTRIAN IMPACTS

  • When monitoring point installation is underway, pylons are used to direct pedestrians and traffic.
  • Pedestrians are rerouted around the locations that are on or near sidewalks.
  • One lane is closed in the area where the installation is occurring to accommodate the required equipment.
  • Reading crews move from instrument to instrument and may be present at each site from 5 minutes to an hour. 
  • Each monitoring point installation process takes anywhere from one hour up to a few days, depending on the type of installation.
  • For installations, nearby residents and businesses can expect to hear noise related to drilling, saw-cutting, hydro-vaccing, and the use of heavy equipment.
