Relief 'en route' at Bayview and Eglinton

After numerous conversations with Metrolinx and Crosslinx regarding the traffic and safety implications of the current configuration of the Bayview and Eglinton intersection, I am pleased to advise that this intersection will re-open later this spring and return to its previous configuration.
In other Crosstown-related news, Crosslinx is in the process of installing tent structures to cover their shallow excavation at Mount Pleasant station site near Mount Pleasant and Eglinton. Crosslinx will require 3 tents to cover their work area for a period of 4 months. The entire structure will fit within the limits of their current construction site, without having to change the traffic set up. Water runoff will be contained within the site as the tents will not go past any construction fences. I have been assured that there will be no impacts to motorists or pedestrians.

Finally, Metrolinx will be holding a public meeting this Thursday, April 4 regarding plans for construction at Leslie and Eglinton. Please find more details on the meeting below:

Date: Thursday, April 4, 2019
Time: 7:00 p.m. - 8:30 p.m.
Location: Japanese-Canadian Cultural Centre (6 Garamond Ct.)
As the Crosstown project continues, I will maintain my efforts to ensure that concerns I hear from residents about aspects of the project are communicated directly to senior staff at Metrolinx.
