What work is taking place?

From Friday, July 12 until Sunday, July 14, 2019, crews will be performing a mass concrete pour of 800 cubic metres for the fourth section of the roof slab at Keelesdale station. Due to the location and space requirements for this activity, Eglinton Avenue West will be closed from Keele Street & Trethewey Drive to Scott Road to safely carry out the work. Upon completion of this activity, Eglinton Avenue West will re-open. This work will begin overnight to ensure continuity of the pour. Crews will endeavor to minimize disruption as best as possible while this work takes place.
