Crosstown LRT Construction Update

Watermain Work at Bayview and Eglinton Avenues Starting the Week of July 21, 2014

What: Crews will be working on watermain construction on the east side of the intersection of Bayview Avenue and Eglinton Avenue East.

Why: Headwalls are required to be in place prior to the arrival of tunnel boring machines at each of the stations and emergency exit building locations. Construction of the headwalls requires utilities to be moved safely out of the way before work begins. Depending on site conditions, gas, hydro, water mains, sewers, traffic street lighting and telephone lines may be relocated to allow for the construction of headwalls.

When: Starting as early as Tuesday, July 22, 2014 and for approximately two to three weeks, crews will be working within the roadway at the intersection of Bayview Avenue and Eglinton Avenue East.

Where: During stage one, crews will occupy the westbound left-turn lane and the centre eastbound lane on Eglinton Avenue East as a work zone for approximately one week. The work zone will be approximately the length of the Eglinton east side median.

During stage two, crews will occupy the right-turn lane and the westbound curb lane as a work zone for approximately one week, and will extend from the east side of the intersection to east of the right-turn lane.

The work zone will be separated from the right-of-way with traffic cones.

Gas Line Relocation for Headwall Construction of Bayview Station Starting the Week of July 21, 2014

What: Enbridge will be relocating gas lines for the construction of the Crosstown tunnel and future Bayview Station.

Why: Headwalls are required to be in place prior to the arrival of tunnel boring machines at each of the stations and emergency exit building locations. Construction of the headwalls requires utilities to be moved safely out of the way before work begins. Depending on site conditions, gas, hydro, watermains, sewers, traffic street lighting and telephone lines may be relocated to allow for the construction of headwalls.

When: Starting on Monday, July 21, 2014, crews will begin to occupy a section of the roadway on Roehampton Avenue. The work zone will continue to shift as crews trench and install the new gas lines. Each road will be affected independently. It is expected the entire work will be completed in several months. Some work may be rescheduled due to weather conditions and unforeseen circumstances.

Where: Various side streets will experience rolling lane restrictions and short-term closures for installing new gas lines. The following roads will be affected in this order:

  • Roehampton Avenue
  • Bruce Park Avenue
  • Eglinton Avenue
  • Hoyle Avenue
  • Soudan Avenue

For more information about this gas line relocation work, please contact Enbridge by phone at 1-855-884-5112.
