Wild and crazy corner about to begin a new adventure

The corner of Bayview Ave.and Eglinton East is about to begin another convulsive adventure in building the much-loved (by politicians) LRT. Medians on Bayview are being demolished Tuesday to permit traffic to be switched back and forth from one side of the street to the other. A new maze of traffic lights to somehow or other control confused drivers is being installed. Thus it will not be long before work begins on the excavations into the street which are required to construct the Leaside Station facilities. As is known, this site is also going to be the scene of a high-rise condominium on Bayview Ave. built by Countrywide Homes. It will probably test the nine-storey bylaw again, just as RioCan is doing at the Sunnybrook Plaza site. Wild and crazy.
