Construction Update - April 7, 2015

Overnight work starting April 10 to early June 2015

As part of the elevator work at Ossington Station, overnight work will be conducted inside the elevator shaft just north of the station (in the laneway). This is required to support daytime construction activities and to maintain continuous concrete placement for the elevator structure. Handheld power tools will be used to conduct this phase of work.

Although the majority of the work will take place underground and inside the elevator shaft, some noise is to be expected from the activities and presence of workers. The elevator shaft has a cover on it which will mitigate some noise. Efforts will be made to keep noise to a minimum.

Work Hours

Overnight work will typically take place between 7:00 p.m. and 5:00 a.m.

Thank you for your patience as we work to improve transit in Toronto.
