What Work is Taking Place?

In late March 2020, the bus loop at Eglinton West Station will be closed for approximately five (5) months while crews construct part of the roof of Cedarvale Station. Temporary covered bus platforms will be constructed on the north and south sides of Eglinton Avenue West to maintain TTC bus service to-and-from Eglinton West Station. Construction of the southside platform will begin Saturday March 14, 2020 for approximately one (1) week. Once the bus loop closes, significant changes to TTC service will be in effect. Please review the complete notice www.thecrosstown.ca or visit www.ttc.ca for more information.

Starting Saturday March 14, 2020, Eglinton Avenue West will be reduced to two eastbound lanes between Allen Road South and Winona Drive, and will remain that way until the bus loop reopens in late summer 2020. This traffic change will be performed overnight from 7:00 p.m. – 7:00 a.m. when traffic is lighter.

Additionally, Eglinton Avenue will be reduced to one lane in each direction between Atlas Avenue and Allen Road South beginning Monday March 16 to Friday March 20, 2020 from 9:30 a.m. – 3:30 p.m. while crews construct the southside platform and widen sidewalk.
