College Station "Easier Access", second-exit projects: Overnight construction, starting May 21

The TTC is continuing its “Easier Access” program to install elevators in its rapid-transit stations, making the subway system accessible for everyone. The program supports the government of Ontario’s Accessibility for Ontarians with Disabilities Act. The provincial legislation commits the TTC to achieving a barrier-free transit system by 2025.

It’s also building second exits from stations with just one exit to increase passenger safety during emergencies.

Since Monday, November 9, the TTC has been building a new station concourse south of the current concourse at College Station. The new concourse combines new elevators and a second exit through the College Park retail development.

As part of the projects, crews are upgrading the water main on Yonge Street. To prepare for water-main construction, City of Toronto Water crews are conducting tests on the water valves in the area, then cutting and capping the old water main. Toronto Water requires two separate days to complete this necessary work. They plan to test the valves from midnight until 2 a.m. Friday, May 21 and cut and cap the old main from 11 p.m. Wednesday, May 26 until 5 a.m. Thursday, May 27.

To prevent flooding in the area, crews can’t complete these activities without shutting off the water supply at

  • College Park (#420 Yonge Street); and
  • the Aura Building (#386 Yonge Street).

A small crew will be working on Yonge Street to expose and isolate valves between College and Gerrard Street. Work vehicles will be present in the area.

Construction on the new elevators and second exit / entrance continues until 2023.
