As part of the TTC’s commitment to safety and modernization, College Station (Line 1) will be getting a new second exit/entrance, and elevators to improve customer safety, accessibility and convenience. A new concourse will be constructed south of the existing concourse that will combine elevators and a second exit through College Park.

The work zone will be on Yonge Street, south of College Street. The work will be completed in stages to reduce impact to the local area, pedestrians, cyclists and motorists as much as possible.

What to expect

In order to maintain sidewalk access and one lane of traffic in each direction throughout construction, Yonge Street will need to be widened (Stage 1A) and the centre median removed (Stage 1B).

Stage 1A will begin on November 23, 2020 (for approx. 6 weeks)

A work zone will be set up in the existing northbound curb lane and occupy a portion of the existing sidewalk. Hoarding will be installed to create a safe work zone.

Work activities will include:

  • Installation of hoarding/barriers and traffic control
  • Hydro pole removal and utility relocation work
  • Removal of street furniture and trees within the work zone
  • Partial sidewalk removal
  • Noise, dust and vibration associated with construction can be expected with this work. Efforts will be made to keep levels to a minimum.

Pedestrian and Vehicular Access:

  • Access to local businesses and sidewalks on the east side of Yonge Street will be maintained at all times.
  • One northbound lane will be maintained at all times.

Stage 1B: Median removal (for approx. 8 weeks)

Following the completion of Stage 1A, the centre median on Yonge Street will be removed. Hoarding will be installed to create a safe work zone.

Work activities will include:

  • Installation of hoarding/barriers and traffic control
  • Removal of the centre median, including any street furniture and trees within the work zone
  • Noise, dust and vibration associated with construction can be expected with this work. Efforts will be made to keep levels to a minimum.

Pedestrian and Vehicular Access:

  • One lane of traffic in each direction on Yonge Street will be maintained at all times.

Work hours and timeline

The majority of construction work will take place from 7 a.m. to 7 p.m.

Some extensions outside of these hours may be required to facilitate deliveries and to accommodate the operation of local businesses.

TTC service

Subway service is planned to run throughout construction.
