Continuing Demolition Work for Forest Hill Station

July 2016

What Work is Taking Place?

In July 2016, crews will begin demolition of 875 Eglinton Avenue West to make way for a construction laydown area for Forest Hill Station.  The area will host equipment, material and construction vehicles for the duration of station construction.  Upon completion of station construction, the land will be turned over to a third party for future development.  For the safety of the public and workers, temporary sidewalk, laneway and road closures will be in effect to accommodate this work.

Timing

  • Work is permitted between the hours of 7:00 AM and 11:00 PM, 7 days a week
  • The contractor may not always work during the permitted hours, but may do so at its discretion
  •  In the event that overnight is required, Metrolinx and CTS will notify the public in advance and monitor activities throughout

What to Expect

  • Nearby businesses and residents can expect increased noise caused by trucks, excavators, backhoes, and other construction equipment, as well as dust from demolition activity and debris removal
