What Work is Taking Place?

As part of the continued support of excavation works and utility relocations for the future Science Centre station, traffic staging at the intersection of Don Mills Road and Eglinton Avenue East will be changing as early as May 11, 2017. 

On the west side of the intersection, utility relocations and road widening continue on the northwest and southwest corners. On the east side of the intersection, support of excavation work requires a new work zone in the centre of the road; traffic will be diverted on either side of the work zone.

Hours of Work

  • Weather permitting, crews will adjust the traffic set-up on the following schedule:
  1. Thursday May 11 at 7:00 PM, working overnight until Friday May 12 at 5:00 AM
  2. Friday May 12 at 7:00 PM, around the clock until Monday May 15 at 5:00 AM
  • A paid-duty Police Officer will be present during traffic set-up work.
  • The contractor may not always work during the permitted hours, but may do so at its discretion.
  • Work may be rescheduled due to weather conditions or unforeseen circumstances.
  • Additional traffic set-up may be required and may take up to 1 week to complete.
  • Once the traffic set-up is in place, it will remain for up to 3 months.

Traffic and Pedestrian Details

  • During the work zone set-up additional lane reductions may be required.
  • Once the set-up is complete, a minimum of two lanes of traffic in each direction will be maintained.
  • The east crosswalk will be closed. Pedestrian detours are clearly marked with signage directing pedestrians to the alternate routes.

TTC Details

  • The westbound bus stop on Eglinton Avenue East has moved to the west side of Don Mills Road. 
  • The southbound bus stop on Don Mills Road has moved to the north side of the intersection. 
  • Relocation and re-routing of bus stops is done in consultation between TTC and Metrolinx to ensure construction can continue safely while minimizing impact on the community and customers. 
  • Please watch for posted signage indicating new transit information.
