What Work is Taking Place?

During this time, Eglinton Avenue East will be reduced to one single lane. To minimize disruption, this work will be completed at night when traffic volumes are reduced.

  • Monday October 2 at 10:00 p.m. through 2:00 a.m. on Tuesday October 3
  • This work may be rescheduled due to weather or unforeseen circumstances.

What to Expect
