All southbound lanes on Allen Road from Lawrence Avenue West to Eglinton Avenue West in Toronto will be closed on Saturday, March 17 and Sunday, March 18 as a result of work by Crosslinx Transit Solutions to construct a utility service across the southbound off ramp just north of Eglinton Avenue.
This work is an integral component of the Metrolinx construction of the Cedarvale Station as part of the Eglinton Crosstown Light Rail Transit system being built across the Eglinton Avenue corridor.
Enhanced signage will inform drivers of the road closures and signal-timing changes on parallel roads will help manage traffic in the area. Road users should expect to encounter some delays and increased traffic on nearby roads.

This work is part of the City’s comprehensive, co-ordinated strategy to rehabilitate and upgrade Toronto’s roads, transit and underground infrastructure for current and future needs.
