WHAT WORK IS TAKING PLACE?

The Rail Corridor Project moves to the west side of the rail corridor as early as July 8, 2019. To facilitate construction in this phase, two new access points will be required into the GO Transit Corridor. Crews will be using the vacant city property at 117 Brownville Ave to access the corridor south of Eglinton Ave, and the access gate through the noise wall on Locust Ave for access north of Eglinton Ave. Both access points will be used throughout the works.

 Construction activities include LRT Tunnels, GO Bridge Expansion, and GO Platforms. Construction notices will be updated in more detail on a regular basis as specific activities and operations begin.
