Metrolinx and its contractors continue building the Hurontario light rail transit line at Port Credit GO Station.

It intends to build a new underpass on the south side of the rail corridor at the station. Building the underpass will allow the LRT vehicles to travel into the future below-ground Port Credit LRT Station.

Starting Monday, January 17, the LRT work zone blocks the east tunnel to the north parking lot and the area around it.

Use the temporary pedestrian bridge to get to the west tunnel. A pedestrian path will be available from the north parking lot around the construction area.

Look for signs with information to guide through the the parking lot.

It’s also blocked the driveway from Park Street East into the south parking lot. You can still access the south parking lot from Ann Street and Queen Street East. GO Transit says, “There is still parking available in the north, south and west parking lots.”

Since Thursday, July 29, 2021, the LRT work zone has blocked even more parking spaces in the north parking lot.

Access to the tunnels, bike shelter and pedestrian pathways remains the same as previously.

Since Monday, March 22, 2021, the LRT work zone has blocked 75 more parking spaces in the north lot. Construction activity takes place in the northwest corner of the north parking lot.

Also, since Monday, February 8, 2021 GO made major changes to the station parking due to the LRT construction.

North lot:
  • GO closed some of the parking spaces in the south half of the north parking lot.
  • It relocated reserved parking spaces in the north lot.
  • A pedestrian path is available so you can walk to and from the tunnels connecting to the train platforms.
  • The elevator to the north platform remains available. The elevator to the south platform is currently under construction. An accessibility ramp is available for you to use to reach the south platform. Look for signs to help guide you to and from your platform.
  • Expect a series of closures in the north lot during construction “until the end of 2022”, meaning as late as December 31, 2022.

South lot:
  • GO closed part of the south lot on Hurontario Street. It closed part of the east side and the northern half of the parking lot.
  • It also closed the stairs from Hurontario Street into the south parking lot during construction.
  • It relocated some of the reserved parking spaces in the south lot.
  • Construction does not impact sidewalks or entrances for passengers in the south parking lot.

Also, starting as early as Monday February 8, 2021, crews are protecting and removing trees and shrubs.

Crews are installing plywood fencing around trees in the area to protect them from construction debris. They intend to protect as many trees as possible. However, they will remove trees that they can’t protect. But local bylaws require Metrolinx to replace any trees as a part of the final landscaping of the area.

Construction in the Port Credit GO Station parking lots continues “until 2024”, meaning as late as until December 31, 2024.

Metrolinx also continues enhancing Port Credit GO Station, as part of the GO Expansion Program.

Crews have installed a new temporary pedestrian bridge, which has been available for passengers, since Friday, May 7, 2021. The access route from the north parking lot is no longer available due to Hurontario light rail transit construction around Mary Fix Creek.

LRT construction does not affect access from the north parking lot to the east tunnel.

Since Thursday, December 2, 2020, GO has temporarily removed the PRESTO fare-payment device on the west side of the stairs (between the bus loop and the south platform) until further notice.

It’s also temporarily removed the digital screen displaying trip information and the PRESTO fare-payment device on the east side of the stairs (also between the bus loop and the south platform). Crews will put the machines in place when they finish building the west ramp “in spring 2021”, meaning the devices are out of service as late as until June 30.

PRESTO fare-payment devices are available in the station building and on the ramp at the northwest corner of the south parking lot by the Kiss and Ride. Digital screens are available on the train platforms and in the GO station building.

Since Tuesday, August 4, 2020, GO has closed 15 parking spaces in the southwest lot near Stavebank Road North, so crews can store construction material for ongoing construction at Port Credit GO.

Metrolinx and GO plan to accommodate more passengers and increase service along the Lakeshore West line, as part of their GO Expansion Program (formerly “regional express rail”).
