What we are building

What: Crews will be installing a temporary bridge deck on Eglinton Avenue for the future planned move of the Tunnel Boring Machines (TBMs) from the extraction shaft. The TBMs will be moved from the extraction shaft on the west side of Allen Road to the launch shaft under construction on the east side of Allen Road. This bridge deck will facilitate the movement of the TBMs and is not for public use.

Where: Installation of the supports for this bridge deck will occur in the north lanes of Eglinton Avenue in front of Eglinton West subway station. The installation of the support micro-piles will be followed by the addition of ramps and placement of steel beams and decking for the temporary bridge deck.

When: Through February and March. While the installation of the bridge deck will be performed closer to the TBM move date, the installation of support piles is expected to last a few weeks. Timelines may be rescheduled or adjusted due to weather conditions and unforeseen circumstances.
