What Work is Taking Place?

As early as June 2017, crews will begin shoring of the station box in the roadway, starting on the north side of Eglinton Avenue East.

Shoring is a common step in the process of constructing the foundation of a building.  Steel piles, as well as braces and tie-backs, will be installed around the perimeter of the station box to support excavation.

Shoring in the roadway will be completed in four stages.  Stages 1 and 2 will take approximately two and a half (2.5) months to complete. 

Crews have already started support of excavation work (shoring) at the Main and Secondary Entrance sites and that work will continue as shoring works move into the roadway.  The entire shoring process for future Mount Pleasant Station will take approximately 12.5 months to complete.

Crews will also complete utility relocation while they are occupying the roadway for shoring works.
