What Work is Taking Place?

Overnight lane reduction to a single lane of traffic on Eglinton Avenue East between Brentcliffe Road and Leslie Street will be required for two nights, as crews drill boreholes in the road to determine the condition of existing soil and rocks in the area. Boreholes will be drilled along Eglinton Avenue East between Brentcliffe Road and Leslie Street in advance of the construction of Laird and Science Centre Stations.

  

Timing

 Work is expected to occur between 9:00 p.m. and 4:00 a.m. on Thursday, December 1 and Friday December 2, 2016. Please note that work may be rescheduled due to weather conditions or unforeseen circumstances.

What to Expect

  • Crews will drill two boreholes in the road to determine the condition of existing asphalt, soil and rocks along Eglinton Avenue East.
  • To minimize traffic disruption crews will work overnight to drill boreholes on Eglinton Avenue East, between Brentcliffe Road and Leslie Street.
  • Nearby residents and businesses can expect to hear noise related to drilling, saw-cutting, hydro-vaccing, and the use of heavy equipment.

Traffic and Pedestrian Impacts

  • Traffic will be reduced to a single lane for both directions of traffic on Eglinton Avenue between Brentcliffe Road and Leslie Street for the duration of this work. 
  • Eastbound and westbound traffic will alternately use the one lane. Flag persons will be onsite directing traffic during the hours of work.
  • Pedestrian and property access will be maintained.
  • As always, please take care when travelling near work sites. Traffic delays are expected during construction.
