Soil-testing for future underground LRT construction
may delay TTC buses until May 18

Metrolinx and TTC crews are testing the soil testing on Eglinton Avenue West at its intersection with Chaplin Crescent since Thursday, April 26. The testing will help staff and contractors design and build the Chaplin underground light rail transit station, part of the future Eglinton-Scarborough Crosstown light rail transit line.

Workers will reduce traffic to just one lane in each direction both east and west of the intersection, while their testing the soil. They’re working seven days a week from 9 a.m. until 4 p.m. Mondays to Fridays and from 9 a.m. until 7 p.m. Saturdays and Sundays.

Work likely continues until Friday, May 18.

Passengers riding TTC buses operating along the 32 Eglinton West and 33 Forest Hill routes should expect delays.
