Metrolinx is building the Ontario Line subway between Exhibition Place / Ontario Place and the area near the Ontario Science Centre, through downtown Toronto.


Metrolinx is building a new underground station that will connect to the new subway to Line 2 Bloor - Danforth at Pape Station. To get ready for upcoming major construction at the station, contractors are working in the station bus terminal, blocking bus bays 3 and 4 on the east side. “As early as” Monday, March 25, crews start installing two new bus bays on the north side of Lipton Avenue to temporarily replace bays 3 and 4. During this work, bus access to the station continues. Passengers and nearby residents and business people can expect noise from construction work and equipment in the work zone.
