 Information as of January 13, 2017

 

 

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.

What Work is taking Place?

Crews are working within the construction site on the north side of Eglinton Avenue West/Keele Street and Trethewey Drive excavating a shallow area, and steel piles, braces and tie-backs are installed around the sides to support the excavation for the Keelesdale Station’s footprint. 

While every effort will be made to minimize noise, residents near the work site can expect to hear trucks, excavators, backhoes, and other construction equipment.
