What to expect

  • Construction crews and equipment will be present along roadways and sidewalks along Eglinton Ave.
  • Each monitoring point installation process takes anywhere from one hour to up to a few days, depending on the type of installation.
  • Reading crews move from instrument to instrument and may be present at each site from 5 minutes to an hour.  
  • For installations, nearby residents and businesses can expect to hear noise-related to drilling, saw-cutting, hydro-vaccing, and the use of heavy equipment.

 

Pedestrians

  • Some portions of sidewalk may need to be closed during work hours, in which cases pedestrians will be directed through alternative routes.
  • Some installation sites may be located on the curb, in which case there would be protection erected around the worksite with a minimum of 1.5m for pedestrians maintained at all times.

 

Traffic Details 

  • During the day, traffic lanes may be reduced. Short-term lane closures will allow the crews to perform their work safely. Some lane closures may be left in place overnight.
  • Parking spaces may be impacted depending on the location of the installation. Protection is set-up around the work area, which may require a few spots at a time.
  • As always, please take care when travelling near work sites.
