Wilson Station

The TTC is rehabilitating the upper bus loop at the station. Crews are completely removing the concrete roadway and waterproofing the structure.

To maintain regular transit service, the TTC has built a temporary bus loop in the main parking lot which removes about 230 parking spots.

The station remains open at all times, however, buses operating along the 29 Dufferin, 104 Faywood and 160 Bathurst North routes pick up and drop off passengers in the temporary terminal. The temporary terminal is part of the “fare-paid” zone of the station, meaning you won’t need a paper transfer, have to pay a second fare or tap your PRESTO card when transferring between buses and trains. You can enter the station from the temporary terminal through the main entrance on Wilson Avenue.

Buses operating along other routes that also usually serve passengers in the upper-level bus terminal, pick up and drop off passengers in the lower-level terminal, instead. The buses follow a revised path to access the lower level, but continue to serve all regular on-street stops along the 96 Wilson (westbound), 118 Thistle Down, 119 Torbarrie, 165 Weston Rd North (westbound) and 186 Wilson rocket (westbound) routes.

The TTC is also relocating the stop in the lower-level terminal for buses operating along the 120 Calvington route.

Frederick G. Gardiner Expressway — ramp closure

The City of Toronto is permanently closing the ramp from the eastbound expressway to York, Bay and Yonge Streets. It will replace the old ramp with a new, shorter one from the eastbound Gardiner to Lower Simcoe Street.

GO Transit is detouring buses operating eastbound along the expressway toward Union Station GO Bus Terminal. It has added ten minutes to the schedules for buses operating along the routes, so that most buses arrive in the terminal ten minutes later than previously.

By adding extra time to the schedule, GO is accommodating the longer path through downtown Toronto for buses operating along the 16 Hamilton / Toronto express, 18 Lakeshore West early-morning, 21 Milton / Toronto and 31 Guelph / Georgetown / Toronto routes.

Read Transit Toronto’s April 10 post for more information.

Demolition of the old ramp, construction of the new ramp and the GO detours end January 2018.

Davisville Carhouse and Yard

The TTC is extending the facility at the north and south ends. When they finish work, the complex will include two more subway tracks to accommodate the entire length of the new Toronto Rocket trains and improve the efficiency of maintenance operations. The yard will remain in full operation during the project.

Crews mostly work on this project Mondays to Fridays from 7 a.m. until 7 p.m., but may also occasionally work weekends and overnight, if necessary. The contractors are setting up a safe work zone with concrete barriers and hoarding to allow them to work during the day without impacting daily yard operations.

Read Transit Toronto’s December 19, 2016 post for more information.

Construction in Downsview Park and the TTC detour continue until December 2018.

St Patrick Station

TTC contractors are building a new elevator to make the station accessible. The work blocks the pedestrian crossing on the north side of Dundas Street West at University Avenue.

Work on the project also restricts median traffic lanes on University, north and south of Dundas West. The work zone for building the elevator shaft from the concourse level to the subway platform occupies the north island at the intersection.

During construction, pedestrians must cross University on the south side of the intersection. While the subway is open, pedestrians who are able may also cross underground through the subway station.

The TTC is co-ordinating this project with a second project to build an elevator from street to concourse level. A private developer is building this second elevator, as part of a new development on the northwest corner.
