What work is taking place?
As part of Hurontario Light Rail Transit Project, watermain, sewer and telecommunication infrastructure installation works will be starting on the east side of Hurontario Street at High Street, moving north to Queen Elizabeth Way (QEW). Crews will be working extended overnight hours for two days in early June to paint traffic lines, install construction signs, align traffic signal heads with the intersections and install temporary bus platforms. Upon completion, traffic configuration will be updated to one northbound traffic lane and one southbound traffic lane, with turning lanes where available until Fall 2022 when the roadway will return to two northbound and southbound lanes.
Starting in late June, vehicular traffic will be restricted at the entrance of Eaglewood Boulevard and Hurontario Street. The road will be closed for approximately one week to safely complete watermain installations and may be closed again at a future date to safely complete telecommunications infrastructure. Advanced notice of future closures will be provided to the impacted community once dates have been scheduled for any additional works. Road closure and detour signs will be posted to keep residents and businesses informed of this closure. Residential driveways will not be impacted during this work. Side entrances for the plaza and gas station that face Eaglewood Boulevard will be closed during this work, pedestrian access will be maintained.
• Overnight work is scheduled for two nights in early June, with work hours from at 7 p.m. to 7 a.m.
• Eaglewood Boulevard closure will last for approximately one week in late June.
• Watermain work hours are from 6 a.m. and 10 p.m., Monday to Saturday. However, night works may be scheduled as required.
