Traffic Configuration


As early as Tuesday, October 12, 2021, and lasting through Saturday, October 23, 2021, crews will begin sidewalk restoration at Laird Station’s Main Entrance. To accommodate this work, a lane reduction will be in place and pedestrians will be diverted around the work zone. 


What to Expect


Work will take place in two (2) phases. Phase One will last from Tuesday, October 12 through approximately Friday October 22, 2021, and includes milling and elevation restoration of the existing sidewalk. This phase requires pedestrians to be safely rerouted around the work zone. Phase Two will last approximately one day and take place on Saturday, October 23, 2021, and includes concrete pouring of the new sidewalk. This phase will require the west crosswalk at the intersection and the sidewalk in front of the Main Entrance to be closed to pedestrians. Pedestrians will be directed to cross at Sutherland Drive. Eastbound traffic on Eglinton Avenue East will be reduced by one lane. Delays can be expected while the change is being implemented.
