FULL INTERSECTION CLOSURE BATHURST STREET AND EGLINTON AVENUE WEST AUGUST 24-25, 2018

 
août 17, 2018

What Work is Taking Place? 

On Friday August 24, 2018, crews will implement a full closure of the intersection of Bathurst Street and Eglinton Avenue West to complete a concrete roof pour at Forest Hill Station. Bathurst Street will be closed from south of Roselawn Avenue to south of Dewborne Avenue, and Eglinton Avenue West will be closed from east of Hilltop Road to west of Old Forest Hill Road.  Several concrete pumps will be placed around the intersection with concrete trucks queuing and traveling along Bathurst Street and Eglinton Avenue West.  TTC buses will be detoured during the closure.

To minimize the duration of the closure and ensure the quality of the pour, crews will work overnight beginning at 10:00 p.m. for approximately 14 hours.  The intersection will be reopened once the work is complete.
