What is the Crosstown?

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.

Temporary Sidewalk Closure for Forest Hill Station


What Work is Taking Place?

In April 2016, crews began demolition of 874-876 Eglinton Avenue West to make way for the secondary entrance of Forest Hill Station.  Demolition work resumed on May 31st.  For the safety of the public and workers, a temporary sidewalk closure will be in place for approximately one week to complete some of this work as early as June 13.


  • Work is permitted between the hours of 7:00 a.m. and 11:00 p.m., 7 days a week
  • The contractor may not always work during the permitted hours, but may do so at its discretion
  • In the event that overnight is required, Metrolinx and CTS will notify the public in advance and monitor activities throughout

What to Expect

  • Nearby businesses and residents can expect increased noise caused by trucks, excavators, backhoes, and other construction equipment, as well as dust from demolition activity and debris removal
