Eglinton Ave. a one-lane wonder and related street news

The preparations for excavation at the site of the Leaside LRT Station has created a true one-lane wonder on Eglinton both ways to well beyond the Sunnybrook Plaza on the corner. This day saw the single line of traffic blocking cars with the green signal on Rumsey Road more than half a kilometre away. At the plaza, business is still underway despite the difficulty getting in. A new jewellery store is opening and rumour around the plaza says the corner store (former Mac’s) will be taken by a manicurist.  Thursday saw a visit from a Barrie Taxi driver, putting in time while a patient from his City was treated at the world-class Sunnybrook Health Sciences Centre. The return fare for this passenger in need of care was $300.
