What Work is Taking Place?

Crews will be working on the CP rail bridge over Eglinton Avenue West. In order to facilitate the construction of the new CP Bridge structure, there will be partial removals of the existing structures – hand railing, Bell 360 fibre infrastructure and concrete sidewalk. This work will require the closure of Eglinton Avenue West from Black Creek Drive to Weston Road the weekend of March 24th and 25th.
