Eglinton Crosstown LRT - Forest Hill:
Overnight lane reductions, starting March 11



Eglinton Crosstown header.jpg

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


From 8 p.m. Monday, March 11 until 5 a.m. Tuesday, March 12 and continuing nightly, crews start installing hydro-utility infrastructure and drilling boreholes at various locations

  • near the intersection of Eglinton Avenue West with Bathurst Street

and near the site of the future Forest Hill Station.

The boreholes help geotechnical surveyors to investigate underground soil conditions and help engineers design the project.

Crews work in the roadway and on the sidewalks. Work zones restrict traffic to just one lane only

  • on Bathurst Street south of Eglinton Avenue West; and
  • on Eglinton Avenue West east and west of Bathurst Street.

Traffic-control personnel direct traffic through the single, shared lanes, alternating the flow of traffic in one direction at a time.

Work zones may also temporarily block sidewalks.
