*Content / timeline accurate at time of printing.


What we are doing and why:

TTC is working to build elevators that will make King Station accessible.


To facilitate this work, crews will be conducting a sewer bypass on Colborne Street as early as April 15, 2024. The work area on Colborne Street must be expanded to complete the sewer bypass.

What to expect:

  • Construction crews and construction vehicles will be present in the area.
  • Work is conducted in stages, protective hoarding will be in place, street parking/roadways will be reduced in areas of construction.
  • Driveways will remain accessible during construction, however, it may be restricted.


    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.
  • Majority of the work will take place between 7 a.m. and 7 p.m., Monday to Friday. As permitted, some weekend and overnight work may be required during the course of this project for safety and efficiency.


A map is included, the area expanded is indicated with diagonal hatch marks.




Traffic Management:

  • Yonge Street will be reduced to one lane in each direction for the project to complete work safely.
  • One lane between Scott Street to Yonge Street on Colborne Street will be maintained with no access to southbound Yonge Street.
  • Local traffic only will be allowed on Jordan and Melinda Streets.
  • The “no left turn” signage has been eliminated at Northbound Yonge and King Streets as well as Westbound King Street and Jordan Street.
  • Pedestrian access will be maintained at all times with periodic detours.
  • No impact to TTC streetcars, buses or subway service is expected during construction.
