What Work is Taking Place?

Due to variable weather conditions and to support the continued progress on the Wilson Brook Culvert works, a generator will be onsite to operate a water pumping system to remove accumulated precipitation from the construction zone. It may run continuously, including overnight between 11 p.m. and 7 a.m. for the next 4-6 weeks as required based on weather conditions.

Work on the Wilson Brook Culvert has been underway since late August 2018 on Eglinton Avenue in front of 1730 Eglinton Avenue East (on the north side of Eglinton). This work is expected to continue until late 2018 and then the work zone will shift to the south side of Eglinton Avenue East.

Crews are building a temporary storm drain line, as well as excavating and replacing the storm water culvert under Eglinton Ave East.

Timing

  • Work is expected to occur from 7:00 a.m. to 11:00 p.m., seven (7) days per week, Monday through Sunday.
  • Work on the north side is expected to take approximately four (4) months to complete.
  • 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 of unforeseen circumstances.

What to Expect

  • The initial phase of this work will have significant noise and vibration impacts.
  • If you have a business in the area, it is suggested that you take extra precautions with business operations and equipment that are sensitive to vibrations.
  • If you live near the construction zone, you may want to temporarily remove wall hangings and pictures that could fall and be damaged from these potential vibrations.
  • Due to the nature of this work, at times there will be noise and vibration around the work area. Monitoring will be conducted to ensure all levels are kept within industry standards.
  • The driveway to 1730 Eglinton Avenue East will remain open.
