What Work is Taking Place?

As part of the continued support of excavation works (shoring) and utility relocations for the future Kennedy Station, traffic staging at the intersection of Kennedy Road and Eglinton Avenue East will be changing. Shoring began in April 2018 and will continue in phases at the intersection.

Preparatory work for the reconfiguration will take place as early as mid-January 2019. Once the traffic set-up is in place, this configuration is expected to remain in place for approximately two (2) years.

Hours of Work

  • Work is expected to start as early as mid-January 2019.
  • Once the new traffic set up in in place, this phase is expected to last approximately two (2) years.
  • Support of excavation (SOE) work will be performed between the hours of 6 AM and 5 PM, Monday to Friday.
  • Work may be rescheduled due to weather conditions or unforeseen circumstances.

What to Expect

  • During the preparation and flip itself, nearby residents and businesses can expect to see line painting vehicles, and other light vehicles carrying the traffic equipment and signage.

Traffic and Pedestrian Impacts

  • All crosswalks will be open. 
  • A minimum of two lanes of traffic in each direction on Eglinton Avenue East and Kennedy Road will be maintained.
  • Temporary sidewalk access to Kennedy Station only located at the south side of Kennedy Road, pedestrians will need to cross to north side to continue on Eglinton Avenue East.
  • New traffic signals will be installed 160m east of Kennedy Road and Eglinton Avenue East.
  • Signage will be in place to direct pedestrians to alternate routes.
