The University of Toronto is seeking volunteer balconies in the Yonge-Eglinton Construction Hub to host an air quality monitor for two weeks this summer. The research team is assessing the impact of urban construction on local air quality to help identify best practices in sustainable construction. Volunteer your balcony or subscribe for research updates.

In November 2019, the Yonge and Eglinton Construction Hub was created to conduct logistical planning of the right-of-way, review Construction Management Plans, connect travellers with real-time information, collaborate with enforcement officers and communicate impacts and changes to businesses and communities in the neighbourhood.

Private Laneway Closure

The privately owned laneway on the east side of 101 Roehampton Ave. to Eglinton Ave. E. will be closed as of June 20 due to nearby construction.

Temporary Traffic Flow & Parking Changes

In July 2021, two residential streets in the Yonge and Eglinton Construction Hub were temporarily changed to one-way traffic to improve road safety for pedestrians, cyclists and motorists while allowing construction vehicles access to the sites.

  • Roehampton Avenue, between Yonge Street and Mount Pleasant Avenue, is one-way for eastbound traffic only.
  • Broadway Avenue, between Mount Pleasant Avenue and Yonge Street, is one-way for westbound traffic only, including the cycle path.
  • Redpath Avenue from Erskine Avenue and Broadway Avenue will be closed to vehicle traffic from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. to facilitate building maintenance.

  • There is no parking or stopping on Redpath Avenue between Eglinton Avenue East and Erskine Avenue

The City is monitoring traffic patterns in the area and will re-evaluate this traffic plan as construction progresses.

The Construction Hub has a number of road safety initiatives, including:

  • raising awareness about heavy truck blind spots (more details below)
  • conducting truck routing for each development site that has specific requirements for deliveries
  • improving measures to reduce dust and airborne particles, and
  • monitoring air quality with the University of Toronto.

Blind Spot Awareness

The City is raising awareness about heavy truck blind spots in partnership with Concrete Ontario by visually depicting blind spots.

In addition, the following organizations have formed a blind spot awareness working group:

  • Concrete Ontario (RMCAO)
  • Greater Toronto Sewer & Watermain Contractors Association (GTSWCA)
  • Heavy Construction Association of Toronto (HCAT)
  • Ontario Road Builders Association (ORBA)
  • Ontario Stone Sand & Gravel Association (OSSGA)
  • Residential and Civil Construction Alliance of Ontario
    (RCCAO)
  • Residential Construction Council of Ontario (RESCON)
  • Toronto Area Road Builders Association (TARBA)

The working group will be updating information and posters, expanding the program to more construction equipment, and more. Learn more and watch videos on the Pass Trucks Safely website.
