Construction Works at Science Centre Station and At-Grade Western Alignment (Sunnybrook Park, Aga Khan Park & Museum, and Wynford Stops)
Earlier this month, crews finished driving piles on the southeast side of Eglinton Avenue East and also finished setting up the new traffic reconfiguration at Don Mills Road and Eglinton Avenue. Work zones were moved to the north side of Eglinton Avenue and the east side of Don Mills Road. The new traffic reconfiguration allows crews to continue utility relocations at the northwest and southwest corners, road widening work and piling has begun on the north side of Eglinton Avenue. Excavation has also begun for the off-street bus terminal at the northeast corner.
This new set-up will remain in place for up to three months and a minimum of two lanes of traffic in each direction will be maintained, where possible. Additional lane reductions during off peak hours may be required. For pedestrians, the east-to-west crosswalk on the north side of the intersection is closed. The remaining three crosswalks at the intersection are open. Watch for signage directing to alternate routes.

The Crosstown Community Relations team is continuing their partnership with Smart Commute and Green Communities Canada to facilitate active School Travel Planning (STP) at elementary, middle and high schools across Eglinton Avenue.
The team meets regularly with school committees composed of students, teachers, parents, and City of Toronto staff to share construction updates and develop strategies that promote safe walking and cycling to school during construction.
Students from our Crosstown STP schools work directly with Green Communities Canada to study transportation habits at their school, plan Walk-to-School dates, promote cycling routes and share knowledge on active transportation choices.
The Crosstown team looks forward to continuing this important work throughout 2017.
