What: Both Tunnel Boring Machines have started tunnelling east of Allen Road to Yonge Street. The southbound Allen Road truck staging lane will be used to hold up to 4 trucks at a time as part of the operations. Additionally, the construction compound on the northbound Allen Road will be used as full time facility for staff and crews.  

When:  Starting in September, the construction compound will become fully active. Motorists should exercise caution when travelling on the Allen Road near Eglinton Avenue. Access and egress from both sites will continue for the duration of the long-term construction.  Traffic delays should be expected.
