Effective March 28, 2022

Timeline: Work will begin as early as March 28, 2022 for approximately a month

What we are doing and why


The TTC’s Easier Access Program is making subway stations accessible. Crews on behalf of TTC will be conducting utility relocation in preparation for the upcoming elevator project that will make Christie Station accessible.


Elevator construction is currently expected to begin in late spring/summer 2022. A Community pre-construction presentation will be provided online in spring 2022 (date TBD), once details are confirmed. The presentation will be posted on the project page here:


Project work will include a barrier-free path from the main entrance to all levels of the station including installation of:


  • Two elevators to access eastbound and westbound platforms
  • Automatic sliding station entry doors
  • Improved signage
  • CCTV – Security cameras along the accessible pathway
  • Public art installation as a part of the TTC Public Art Program


Various utility relocation will begin as early as March 28, 2022 in the vicinity of Christie Station and in the Erlichman laneway:


  • Prior to station elevator construction, some utilities are required to be relocated and this will involve some saw cutting.  
  • Bell and Rogers crews will remove and install new temporary utility poles/cables south of Erlichman laneway.
  • Toronto Hydro will work to connect the new temporary light poles.
  • Small work zones will be set up within the City right-of-way along Christie Street and within the laneway, some lane reductions will be in place.
  • Some parking at 710-716 Bloor St. W. will be temporarily unavailable in order to complete the work.
  • Construction crews and trucks/vacuuming equipment will be present.
  • During the day, some construction noise is expected.
  • Pedestrian and local traffic detours will be in place, when required.
  • No impact to TTC buses or subway service.


Noise, vibration and work hours:

Noise, dust and vibration associated with construction can be expected with this work. Efforts will be made to keep levels to a minimum.


The majority of work will take place between Monday to Friday, 7 a.m. and 7 p.m.
