What is the Crosstown?

 

Metrolinx is building the Eglinton Crosstown, Toronto’s new 19-kilometre light rail transit (LRT) line that will run along Eglinton Avenue with a central 10 km underground section. The Crosstown will connect Mount Dennis in the west to Kennedy Road in the east, and the new service will be up to 60% faster than the bus service today. With 25 stations and stops and connections to 3 TTC subway stations, 54 local bus routes, 3 GO Transit lines and the UP Express, the Crosstown will improve travel times and change the way we move through the heart of the city.

Hours of Work

The work will take approximately three (3) weeks to complete and may begin as early as September 12, 2016.  Please note that work could be rescheduled due to weather conditions or unforeseen circumstances. 

What to Expect

To accommodate for the removal of a significant number of trees, including mature specimens and dense forest area the former Kodak lands have been divided into two sections; a western area (Mount Dennis and EMSF site) and an eastern area (City of Toronto ravine and Natural Features Protection and Toronto Region Conservation Authority). 

All of the western two-thirds and approximately half of the eastern two-thirds of the site will be excavated and regraded both due to existing contaminant remediation procedures and for new grades for roads, water management ponds, and new buildings.
