WHAT WORK IS TAKING PLACE?

Starting as early as January 8, crews will be completing Bell utility relocation work on the northeast corner of Bathurst Street and Eglinton Avenue West. This work will take place in the roadway and on the sidewalk. As a result, traffic on Eglinton Avenue West will be reduced to one shared lane, east of Bathurst, alternating traffic in each direction. To minimize the impact to pedestrians and road users, this work will be performed overnight. Temporary lane and sidewalk closures will be in effect.

The sidewalk and lane will be reinstated upon completion of the work.
