The Crosstown is a 19-kilometre light rail transit line (LRT) that will run through the heart of Toronto. Running along Eglinton Avenue, the LRT will connect west to east from Jane Street/Black Creek Drive to Kennedy Station. Ten kilometres will be tunnelled underground between Keele Street and Laird Drive and will continue east on an at-grade right-of-way separated from traffic to Kennedy Station, where it will join with a converted Scarborough RT line on an elevated structure. Construction of The Crosstown began in the summer of 2011, and has a projected completion date of 2020.
