What Work is Taking Place?

Crews will be installing OCS (Overhead Catenary System) cables along Eglinton Avenue East between Sinnott Road, Birchmount Road, and Rosemount Drive. Overhead catenary is the system installed overtop of the rails of a light rail system, to provide operational power to the LRVs (Light Rail Vehicles). Installation will take place January 20 – February 5, 2021 between the hours of 9:00 p.m. and 6:00 a.m.

To minimize the impacts to traffic, work will be performed overnight between the hours of 9:00 p.m. and 6:00 a.m. A 15-minute closure of each intersection will be required as the high rail vehicle passes through the intersections. Paid duty officers will be onsite nightly to assist with traffic management.  Installation will take place January 20 – February 5, 2021.
