Temporary Parking Removal and Lane Closure for Crane Demobilization at Chaplin Station - Wednesday February 26, 2020

février 24, 2020

What Work is Taking Place?

On Wednesday February 26, 2020, a mobile crane will be removed from the Chaplin Station Main Entrance site. The crane will travel north on Gilgorm Road to New Haven Drive, south on Spadina Road to Chaplin Crescent and turn left onto Eglinton Avenue West where it will be loaded onto a truck.  To move the crane, parking must be temporarily prohibited on Gilgorm Road, New Haven Drive and Spadina Road.  Parking prohibitions will be in effect on Tuesday evening, prior to demobilizing the crane.  Additionally, Eglinton Avenue will be reduced to one lane only between Chaplin Crescent and Latimer Avenue to load the crane onto the truck.  Once the crane has been loaded, the parking will be reinstated.
