Note re Road Closure/Eglinton Crosstown:

For those coming by car,  if driving eastbound along Eglinton you can make a right turn onto Credit Union Dr. and a right into the centre’s parking lot, no problem. This would apply to those coming from the DVP.
If you are driving westbound along Eglinton you  cannot make a left turn onto Credit Union Dr. (this side of the road/entrance to Credit Union Dr. is closed). You will need to make the left turn at Bermondsey Rd., a right onto Mobile Dr. and a right onto Credit Union Dr., and then a left into the centre. .
When leaving the centre by car, there is no access from Credit Union Dr. to Eglinton. So, from the parking lot, drivers will turn right (south) onto Credit Union Dr., left onto Mobile Dr., then left onto Bermondsey Rd. From Bermondsey Rd. drivers can go east or west onto Eglinton. You can also go north on Sloan (a continuation on Bermondsey) which will take them to Victoria Park. Note, the Victoria Park intersection is closed going north and south.

If coming via the Eglinton bus, you will be able to get across Eglinton by foot and there is a stop light for pedestrian crossing.
