Effective

For background information, please visit the project page.


What we are doing and why:

The TTC’s Easier Access Program is making subway stations accessible. The TTC is conducting work at the intersection of Strathmore Boulevard & Linnsmore Crescent to make Greenwood Station accessible in 2024.

The overall project will be conducted in various stages. A Community pre-construction presentation was provided in Fall 2021 and is posted online: www.ttc.ca/greenwoodconstruction

The project will create 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

Stage 2 & 3 Construction (updated with new timelines)

 

Stage 2 work will continue while crews set up Stage 3 (as early as June 21, 2022):

  • Dewatering activities will continue. A self-contained generator is in place to provide a continuous supply of power to the dewatering pump. A consistent low hum may be audible. The generator is required to be on consistently (24/7) for the dewatering works to ensure construction can be completed safely.
  • The excavation/installation of the maintenance hole on the east side of Linnsmore Cres. will occur.
  • Other civil works will continue.
  • Traffic lanes at Strathmore and Linnsmore intersection will be closed.
  • A small work zone will be set up on the east side of Linnsmore Cres (south of Strathmore Blvd.) to divert utilities. 
  • Jet grouting, caisson, excavation and other activities will be taking place to build the elevator shafts.
  • A vacuum truck will also be on site as required for safe excavations around existing utilities.
  • Noise and vibration should be expected with this work from the drill rigs and vacuum truck.
  • Construction trucks, equipment and site staff will be present in the general area.
  • Pedestrian detours will be in place.
  • Lane configurations may shift as work progresses.
  • The northbound lane of traffic on Linnsmore Cres. will be backfilled, compacted with asphalt, and re-opened once safe to do so, at the end of July* (pending weather, third-party union strike impacts and unforeseen events):

  • During the closure of the bus loop at Greenwood Station, the 31 Greenwood buses will continue to divert to Coxwell Station via Danforth Avenue and Coxwell Avenue in all service periods.
  • Regular service levels will be maintained.
  • Customers can the access 31 Greenwood Bus from bus stops on Danforth Avenue at Linnsmore Crescent.
  • Access to the station will be maintained throughout construction.
  • Pedestrian detours will be in place.
  • No impacts to subway service on Line 2 – Bloor Danforth.

Local parking:

Street parking will be temporarily reduced in the area of construction.

 

Residents may park on any licenced street within their permit area. Please see the map of the parking permit area: https://www.toronto.ca/legdocs/mmis/2015/pw/bgrd/backgroundfile-85333.pdf

 

New temporary parking:
As approved by City Council and in order to temporarily increase parking during construction, City Transportation will be making temporary changes to allow on-street parking on both sides of some local streets including on Wolverleigh Boulevard. (from east of Linnsmore Crescent to west of Monarch Park Avenue. Parking by permit only from 12 a.m. to 10 a.m.). The City of Toronto has jurisdiction over the right-of-way (ROW).

 

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 for the project will take place between 7 a.m. and 7 p.m., Monday to Friday, as required. As permitted, some overnight and weekend work will be required during the course of this project in order to complete the work as quickly as possible.
