Construction Update at the Wilson Brook Culvert

WHAT WORK IS TAKING PLACE?

Work on the Wilson Brook Culvert has been underway since late August 2018 on Eglinton Avenue East. Crews are building a temporary storm drain line, as well as excavating and replacing the storm water culvert under Eglinton Ave East. The culvert is located on Eglinton Avenue East between Sloane Avenue and Jonesville Crescent.

Traffic lanes will be realigned (depicted below) as early as Saturday, June 29, 2019.

As support of excavation continues, compaction will commence as early as July 2, 2019 and continue for one week. Pile installation will begin as early as July 8, 2019 and continue for approximately two weeks. Excavation and remaining construction activities will then continue until late September, 2019.


TIMING 

  • Traffic lanes will be realigned as early as June 29th, 2019.
  • Compaction will begin as early as July 2, 2019 and continue for approximately one week.
  • Pile installation will begin as early as July 8, 2019 and continue for approximately two weeks.
