New sinkhole on Eglinton Ave W

Toronto has only two seasons: winter and construction. Now with the HOV controversy (where, again, Toronto's bad boy Rob Ford made headlines telling us that he breaks the law), a huge sinkhole on Eglinton Ave West is definitely not helping.

Eglinton-sinkholeMarvel at its size!

  • A sinkhole has partially closed Eglinton Avenue West between Keele Street and Richardson Avenue.
  • One lane is closed in each direction after the nearly 20-foot hole was spotted early Tuesday morning.
  • It appears to be a water main issue and Toronto Water is now investigating, Metrolinx spokesperson Anne Marie Aikins told CityNews.
  • This will not affect any work being done in the area and is an isolated incident, she added.
  • It’s the second big headache for drivers in this area this year.
  • In March, a portion of Eglinton also near Keele and Richardson was closed due to an unstable tunnel at the Eglinton LRT construction site.
  • In that case, water and soil had leaked into a passage way connecting two tunnels for the Metrolinx construction project.
