Clearing and Grubbing at the Future Kennedy Station

 
août 2, 2016

Kennedy Station will be the terminal station at the eastern end of the LRT line, and will also serve as an interchange station. It will be located at Transway Crescent and Eglinton Avenue East, approximately 300 metres east of Kennedy Road. 

What work is Taking Place?

In preparation for station construction, crews will be clearing and grubbing in the vicinity of Eglinton Avenue East and Kennedy Road for the upgrading and relocation of utilities and the widening of the Eglinton Avenue East roadway.

As part of this work, a number of shrubs, bushes and trees closest to the curbside will be removed.  Additionally, a number of trees in close proximity to the construction zone may also require removal or protection during construction. 

All appropriate permissions and permits to remove trees in conflict with station construction are obtained prior to the start of this work. 

Remaining tree removal and protection will be performed based on the future Kennedy Station construction plan.

Timing

Work will begin in late August 2016, subject to the receipt of permits.

Work will take place between the hours of 7:00 a.m. and 5:00 p.m.

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

Where

Crews will be present along Eglinton Avenue East, from Rosemount Drive to Kennedy Road. 

What to expect

Residents and businesses nearby should anticipate noise from chainsaws and wood chippers for the removal of debris.

Traffic Details

Temporary lane closures of the curbside lanes of Eglinton Avenue East between Rosemount Drive and Kennedy Road are expected. 

Pedestrian and property access will be maintained.

As always, please take care when travelling near work sites.

Thank you for your patience as we work to build this important project
