What Work is Taking Place?

  • As part of the ongoing construction works for Leaside Station, installation of above ground and in-ground monitoring points will take place periodically in the vicinity of Eglinton Ave East and Bayview Ave. 
  • Monitoring points are located on Eglinton Avenue from Mann Ave to east of Bayview Ave. Also, on Bayview Ave slightly north and south of Eglinton Ave. 
Timing
  • The installations and readings will occur periodically for duration of the project. 
  • In general, work is permitted between 7 a.m. and 11 p.m., 7 days a week. 
  • For installation work, occupancy of the roadway is permitted between 9am to 4pm on arterial roads and 7am-8pm on local roads.

What to Expect
  • Construction crews and equipment will be present along roadways and sidewalks along Eglinton Avenue.
  • Each monitoring point installation process takes anywhere from one hour 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, vacuum truck, 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 edge of the curb or roadway, in which case there would be protection erected around the worksite with a minimum of 1.5m for pedestrians maintained at all times. 
Traffic
  • 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.
