As a first step in the planning the project, contractors are surveying Donlands Station and the local area. Surveyors are accurately measuring the area, which may require a field crew to place surveying markers at the corners of various properties and elsewhere.

Crews may also locate and mark utilities on Dewhurst and Strathmore Boulevards and Donlands Avenue.

Read Transit Toronto’s March 26 post for more information.

Surveying near Donlands Station continues until further notice.


Contractors are locating underground utilities on the streets, sidewalks and front lawns, Mondays to Fridays from about 8 a.m. until 4 p.m. They’re marking the location of gas, water, sanitary-sewer, storm-sewer and other underground utilities with spray paint, stakes, or flags, then surveying their sites. Field staff try to contact building occupants directly before they work on front lawns.

They’re also digging five utility test holes in the street, using heavy equipment during daytime. Expect noise.

Read Transit Toronto’s June 15 post for more information.

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.

Crews mostly work Mondays to Fridays from about 7 a.m. until 7 p.m. and, occasionally, weekends to complete the project as quickly as possible.

Read Transit Toronto’s June 28 and July 26 posts for more information.

Construction in the upper bus terminal at Wilson Station continues until December 31.

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.
