King West / Niagara rail replacement: TTC detours, June 11, 12, 13, 14

Starting 8 p.m. Friday, June 11, the TTC is replacing worn rail at the westbound stop

  • on King Street West at Niagara Street.

Crews work only in the track area to:

  • cut, mill and break the old concrete to expose the rail;
  • replace the old rail with new rail; and
  • place new concrete.

The transit agency is detouring streetcars and buses along these routes, during the project:

  • 504 King; and
  • 504Q King shuttle buses.

Rail replacement at King West / Niagara and the resulting TTC detours continue until June 14 (4 a.m.)


The track crew sets up a work zone Friday, June 11 at 8 p.m. and start cutting into the concrete. They then mill and excavate to expose the old rail. They end these activities by 11 p.m. each day. However, the TTC cautions, “While most work typically ends at 11 p.m., rail work of this nature requires periods of around-the-clock work to ensure quality installation of new rail and concrete.”

When crews replace the old rail with new rail, they also cut, weld and grind the rail. Expect noise. They then pour concrete in the track area and set it to cure. The new concrete requires curing time before the crews can remove the work zone so that all vehicles can again use this section of roadway by 4 a.m. Monday, June 14.


The work zone restricts traffic to the curb lanes during the project. The City of Toronto is restricting on-street parking near the work zone to maintain traffic flow. The work zone my block motorists from turning left onto or off of this section of King West.


No subway service, June 12, 13: Finch to St Clair

2021 - 06-12 - Finch to St Clair.jpg

All day Saturday, June 12 and Sunday, June 13, the TTC is closing Line 1 Yonge - University subway between Finch and St Clair stations. Line 1 trains operate only between St Clair and Vaughan Metropolitan Centre stations those days.

Shuttle buses partly replace subway service. The buses start and end their trips in the bus terminals at Finch and St Clair stations, but also drop off or pick up passengers on the street near the other stations on this part of the line.

(Or, consider a shuttle-bus alternative.)

Most stations on the closed section of Line 1 remain open so you can pay fares or connect with TTC buses, streetcars and Line 4 Sheppard trains or GO Transit and York Region Transit buses. However, North York Centre Station is closed.

Note also that the TTC is closing exits / entrances at other stations:

  • at Sheppard - Yonge Station, the automatic exits / entrances at Yonge Street and Poyntz Avenue and at Yonge Street and Anndale Drive are closed. Use other station entrances.
  • at York Mills Station, the Old York Mills Road exit / entrance is closed. Use the other station entrances in the York Mills Centre and the Yonge Corporate Centre or at the corner of Yonge Street and Wilson Avenue.
  • at Lawrence Station, the automatic entrances / exits at Ranleigh Avenue and Bedford Park Avenue are closed. Use the entrances at Yonge Street and Lawrence Avenue.

Although all shuttle buses are accessible, Wheel-Trans service is also available from all stations. Ask TTC staff in each station for information about Wheel-Trans.

While this section of Line 1 is closed, Metrolinx contractors work on the Eglinton Crosstown light rail transit line. TTC crews will take advantage of the closure to install the automatic train control (ATC) signalling system in the subway corridor.

The TTC says that “The existing signals, relays, wiring and cabling equipment, much of which is over 60 years old, need replacing as their failure significantly impacts service. Once Automatic Train Control is fully installed and operational, [passengers] will see improved frequency of subway service, less crowding and greater reliability of the signal system.”

According to a TTC news release, “While the TTC does most subway maintenance at the conclusion of service each night, it continues to require weekend and early weeknight closures to complete critical infrastructure and state of good repair work as well as ATC signal upgrades.”


The TTC is closing this section of Line 1 once more in June:

  • Saturday, June 19 and Sunday, June 20 — Lawrence to St Clair — Eglinton Crosstown LRT construction.

Weekend events affect transit services, June 12, 13

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


“The week of” Monday, June 7, GO Transit is opening the new accessible west ramp connecting the bus loop to the south platform. MiWay buses along the 8 Cawthra route pick up passengers at platform 8. Buses along the 23 Lakeshore route continue to serve passengers at platform 5.

GO_June 3 2021_Port Credit_Full Size.jpg

Since Monday, September 14, 2020, GO has been building the new accessible ramp and MiWay buses have picked up passengers from different platforms than usually.

Port-Credit-GO-Station.jpg


Since Friday, May 21, GO has closed the walkway connecting the two pedestrian tunnels in the north parking lot for construction.

You can only access the west tunnel through the pedestrian bridge from Sandham Road. The east tunnel will remain accessible through the pedestrian path around the construction area from the north parking lot.

GO is closing the walkway “until September 2021”, meaning as late as until September 30.


Crews recently installed the new temporary pedestrian bridge, which has been available for passengers, since Friday, May 7. 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.


Friday, April 23, GO crews installed fencing on a small section of the island (north) platform near the entrance to the stairs connecting to the east tunnel. GO contractors need this space to repair the roof, install the ceiling and complete mechanical and electrical work.

Construction and fencing on the island platform at Port Credit GO Station continue “until later this spring”, meaning as late as until June 21.


GO has almost finished upgrading the south-platform elevator at the station but, since Monday, April 5, the elevator connecting the tunnel to the island platform has been out of service, while crews upgrade that elevator, too.

This temporarily changes how you board or exit from trains at the station.

  • If you are headed eastbound toward Union Station and have accessibility needs, use the ramp at the northwest corner of the south parking lot by the passenger pick-up and drop-off area (or “kiss and ride) to reach the south platform.
  • If you are headed westbound toward Aldershot and have accessibility needs, board or exit at Clarkson GO station. If you need help to get to get to Clarkson GO, you can:
  • Register for accessible shuttle service by calling GO at 416-869-3200 or 1-888-438-6646 (toll-free). You can also ask for a paper copy of the request form from a Station Attendant at Port Credit GO station. Ask for help at least 48 hours before you travel.
  • If you need help when you arrive at Port Credit GO, you can:
  • Talk to a station attendant: Staff are currently providing roving passenger service throughout the station from 6:30 a.m. until 1:30 p.m., Mondays to Fridays and from 9:30 a.m. until 4:30 p.m. weekends and holidays. If you do not see a station attendant near you, check the service booth in the station.
  • Call the GO Contact Centre at 416-869-3200 or 1-888-438-6646 toll free (Mondays to Fridays, 8 a.m. until 8 p.m.; weekends and holidays, 9 a.m. until 5 p.m.) After=hours only: Call Transit Safety Dispatch at 905-803-0642 or 1-877-297-0642 toll- free.

GO says, “The elevators at the station are reaching the end of their lifespan and these updates will make them more reliable.”

Elevator construction at Port Credit GO Station continues “until later this spring”, meaning as late as until June 21.


Since Monday, January 11, GO has closed the south platform elevator, while crews upgrade the device.

  • Use the ramp at the northwest corner of the south parking lot by the kiss and ride to get to the south platform.
  • After crews finish upgrading the south platform elevator, they start upgrading the island platform elevator.

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”).


Metrolinx and its contractors also continue building the Hurontario light rail transit line at the station.


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

Since Monday, March 22, the LRT work zone has blocked 75 parking spaces in the north lot of Port Credit GO Station. Construction activity takes place in the northwest corner of the north parking lot. Access to the tunnels, bike shelter and pedestrian pathways remain the same as previously. GO Transit says, “There is still parking available in the north, south and west parking lots.”


Also, since Monday, February 8, 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 “this month (Feb.)” — perhaps as early as Monday February 8 — 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 2023”, meaning as late as until December 31, 2023.

The TTC is closing Line 1 Yonge - University subway between Finch and Eglinton stations earlier than usually Monday, June 7 until Thursday, June 10. Line 1 subway trains operate only between Vaughan Metropolitan Centre and Eglinton stations after 11 p.m. those days.

Shuttle buses partly replace subway service, dropping off or picking up passengers at stops on Yonge Street near stations on the closed section of the line. TTC staff are available in each station to direct you to shuttle-bus stops.

(Or, consider a shuttle-bus alternative.)

Most stations on the closed section of the subway line remain open so you can pay for fares or connect with TTC buses and Line 4 Sheppard subway trains. However, North York Centre Station is closed. Note also that the TTC is temporarily closing exits / entrances at three stations:

  • At Sheppard - Yonge Station, it is temporarily closing the automatic entrance / exits on Yonge Street at Poyntz Avenue and Anndale Drive. You can use all other exits / entrances at the station.
  • At York Mills Station, it is temporarily closing the Old York Mills Road entrance / exit. Enter or exit the station in the York Mills Centre or Yonge Corporate Centre or at the northwest corner of Yonge Street and Wilson Avenue.
  • At Lawrence Station, it’s closing the entrances / exits at Bedford Park and Ranleigh Avenues. Enter or exit the station on Yonge Street at Lawrence Avenues East and West.

While this section of Line 1 is closed, TTC crews are maintaining the tracks in the subway corridor.

According to a TTC news release, “While the TTC does most subway maintenance at the conclusion of service each night, it continues to require weekend and early weeknight closures to complete critical infrastructure and [signal] upgrades.”


The TTC is closing this section of Line 1 at least once more this month:
