Eglinton Crosstown LRT - Surface section:
Traffic-lane closures at Don Valley Parkway



Eglinton Crosstown header.jpg

Metrolinx contractors continue building the future Eglinton Crosstown light rail transit line between Mount Dennis and Kennedy.


“As early as” Monday, March 25, crews start getting ready to widen the roadway and building the LRT “guideway” — the transit-only lanes in the centre of the roadway, including tracks and passenger amenities

  • on Eglinton Avenue East at the Don Valley Parkway (DVP)

and between the future Wynford and Aga Khan stops.

That day, to accommodate upcoming changes to traffic lanes, crews start building a temporary east-bound off-ramp from the southbound DVP to eastbound Eglinton East.

After completing the temporary ramp, crews then work near the Parkway / Eglinton interchange in two stages. They also work every day from 7 a.m. until 11 p.m.


Stage 1 — starting “as early as” Monday, April 1

During Stage 1, crews widen, rebuild and repave the roadway.


For transit passengers

  • The TTC is relocating the westbound stop at the off-ramp from the southbound DVP to a temporary platform beside the work zone on the roadway. Safety barriers protect passengers from traffic.
  • Expect delays aboard buses along these routes:
  • 34 Eglinton East; and
  • 334 Eglinton East overnight.

For pedestrians

  • The sidewalk on the north side of Egliinton is closed between the ramps to and from the northbound and southbound DVP.
  • The sidewalk in the south side of Eglinton is closed east of the ramps to and from the northbound DVP.
  • Crews may intermittently block the north-south crosswalk on Eglinton at the ramps to and from the southbound DVP.

For motorists

  • Crews have built a temporary off-ramp from the southbound DVP to eastbound Eglinton slightly east of the permanent ramp. The permanent ramp is closed.
  • Work zones block centre lanes west of the ramps to and from the southbound DVP.
  • Work zones block curb lanes on the north side of Eglinton between the DVP ramps.
  • Work zones block curb lanes on the north and south sides of Eglinton east of the northbound DVP ramps.
  • Two lanes are available for traffic in both directions on Eglinton east and west of the Parkway.

Stage 1 of construction starts “as early as” Monday, April 1 and continues “for approximately six (6) weeks” or until about May 12.


Stage 2 — starting “as early as” Monday, May 13

During Stage 2, crews build the guideway, including:

  • cutting and removing asphalt;
  • excavating;
  • installing “subgrade materials”;
  • installing duct banks, the track drainage system and the track slab.

(“Subgrade materials” generally refers to compacted soil that has been previously excavated and is now re-installed on-site to support upcoming construction.)


For transit passengers

  • Expect delays aboard buses along these routes:
  • 34 Eglinton East; and
  • 334 Eglinton East overnight.

For pedestrians

  • The north-south crosswalk on Eglinton at the ramps to and from the southbound Parkway is closed.

For motorists

  • Crews have built a temporary off-ramp from the southbound DVP to eastbound Eglinton slightly east of the permanent ramp. The permanent ramp is closed.
  • Work zones block centre lanes from west of the ramps to and from the southbound Parkway to east of the northbound DVP ramps, except for gaps to allow traffic on the ramps to exit onto Eglinton.
  • Two lanes are available for traffic in both directions on Eglinton east and west of the DVP.
