What?

From July 8 to July 11, 2016 Eglinton Avenue West will be closed from east of Everden Road to Westover Hill Road for road deck maintenance.

Friday, July 8 to Monday, July 11 (10 p.m. on Friday to 5 a.m. on Monday)

Some work will be performed during overnight hours  

Work may be rescheduled due to weather conditions or unforeseen circumstances.

What to Expect

A mild odour and some noise may be noticeable with this work. A tent will be installed around the work area to maintain a consistent temperature and protect from possible inclement weather.

Traffic Details 

The northbound Allen Road ramp will not be accessible from westbound Eglinton Avenue West. The northbound on-ramp can be accessed by travelling east along Eglinton Avenue West.

 

Vehicles exiting Allen Road, must turn right (westbound) or continue onto Everden Rd (southbound).

 

Residential side streets east of the Allen Road, between Westover Hill Road and Bathurst Street, will be posted for local access only.  

 

Additional fencing and barriers will be put in place at key locations to ensure the safety of motorist and pedestrians   throughout the weekend work. Advanced signage advising of the road closures will be posted to provide drivers notice of the specific road closures. Paid Duty Officers (PDOs) will be on-site to assist.

 

Pedestrian Details 

There will be no change to the current pedestrian walkways already in use.

 

Transit Users 

TTC Subway service at Eglinton West Station will not be impacted.

32 Eglinton and 332 Eglinton Night bus routes

There will be an increase in bus volume along existing routes in the area as buses will be diverted both ways via: Eglinton Avenue, Bathurst Street, Glencairn Avenue, Marlee Avenue and Eglinton Avenue. Buses will serve existing transit stops along the diversionary routing.

 

TTC signs will be posted for transit users.
