Short Term Lane Closures along Eglinton Avenue
for Daytime and Overnight Monitoring Equipment Installation

for Oakwood Station 

 

What Work is Taking Place?

  • Crews will be installing ground movement monitoring equipment at Oakwood station. These monitors will provide information on ground conditions during station construction.

Timing

  •  The installations began at the end of May 2016 and work will continue for another four to six weeks.
  • Each monitoring point installation process takes anywhere from one hour up to a few days, depending on the type of installation.
  • Daytime work will be completed during off-peak hours.
  • To minimize traffic disruptions, installations within the roadway will be completed at night between 11 pm. and 5 a.m.
  • Some work may be rescheduled due to weather or unforeseen circumstances..

Oakwood to Times road 

What to Expect

  • The equipment will be installed within roadways and sidewalks along the right-of-way on Eglinton Avenue and Oakwood Avenue.
  • Nearby residents and businesses can expect to hear noise related to drilling, saw-cutting, hydro-vaccing, and the use of heavy equipment.

 

 

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.

 

Pedestrians

  •   Pedestrian access will be maintained throughout the works. 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.
