What work is taking place?

From Friday, May 3rd until Sunday, May 5th 2019 crews will be performing a mass concrete pour for the roof slab at Keelesdale station. Due to the location and space requirements for this activity, Eglinton Avenue West will be closed from Municipal Drive to Trethewey Dr. to safely carry out the work. Upon completion of this activity, Eglinton Ave W will re-open. This work will begin to be performed overnight to ensure continuity of the pour. Crews will endeavour to minimize disruption as best as possible while this work takes place. 

Due to the inclement weather conditions leading up to these works, Friday May 10th to Sunday May 12th are the alternative dates for this work. Please sign up for our e-newsletter to receive the most up to date information: www.thecrosstown.ca/sign-up.
