What work is taking place? 

  • As preparatory work for the future at-grade stops continues, crews will be conducting SUE investigations along Eglinton Avenue East to determine the location and depth of existing utilities.
  • Working westward from Ionview Road to Victoria Park Road, crews will drill and use a vacuum truck overtop of existing utilities within the boulevard and roadway, then a surveyor will examine the utilities to obtain coordinates for design purposes.


  • SUE investigation will begin as early as March 21, and will take approximately three weeks to complete.
  • SUE investigation will be conducted between the hours of 7:00 a.m. and 5:00 p.m.

What to expect

  • Construction crews and equipment will be present in the vicinity Eglinton Avenue East, between Victoria Park Road and Ionview Road.
  • Nearby residents and businesses can expect to hear increased noise caused by core drills and hydro-vac trucks.

Traffic Impacts

  • While most of the work is contained within boulevards, intermittent lane reductions along Eglinton Avenue East, between Victoria Park Road and Ionview Road, will be required to access utilities within the roadway
  • Pedestrian and property access will be maintained.
  • As always, please take care when travelling near work sites.

If you would like more detail about this work or any other aspect of the Eglinton Crosstown project, please contact Nicole DiCarlo at (416) 482-7411. We thank you for your continued patience as we work to build rapid transit.


The Eglinton Crosstown is a 19-kilometre light rail transit (LRT) line that will run along Eglinton Avenue through the heart of Toronto, with an underground central section. The line will connect Mount Dennis in the west to Kennedy Road in the east, and the new service will be up to 60% faster than the bus service today.
