The Eglinton Crosstown is a transit project that will provide rapid and reliable service across Eglinton Avenue including an underground central section and will be up to 60% faster than bus service today.

Work is Progressing

What: Crews are relocating various utilities for the construction of the Caledonia Station headwalls. Headwalls are underground support walls located at the east and west ends of the future station location. Initial utility relocation work and installation of headwalls began in May 2013 and will continue until late spring 2014.

Why: These station headwalls are required to be in place prior to the arrival of tunnel boring machines at each of the station locations along the Eglinton Crosstown route. Construction of the headwalls requires the utilities to be moved safely out of the way during the installation of the headwalls. Depending on site conditions, gas, hydro, water mains, sewers, traffic and street lighting and telephone lines may be relocated to allow for the installation.

Where: The work zone is currently extended east of Gabian Way and west side of Croham Road along Eglinton Avenue West. The work zone is located to the north side of Eglinton Avenue West. Barriers are used to separate the work zone from the traffic.

When: Work continues through to late spring 2014. Crews will occupy a section of the roadway for until spring 2014 until the work at this location is complete. Some work may be rescheduled due to weather.
