Work description and purpose

TTC has been working to rehabilitate the bus roadway and passenger platform at Old Mill Station since May 28. The majority of the work will be completed in phases in order to maintain bus service through the loop as long as possible. There will be a phase when the entire bus loop is closed for construction in the month of August (see below).

To maintain customer safety during each phase, protective fencing will be installed along work areas, including at the front of the main entrance and some areas of the platform.

What to expect during construction

  • During the week of May 21, the contractor will set up a storage area and a deliver construction trailers.
  • Work will begin on May 28. The contractor will start to excavate and replace the existing roadway and passenger platform in phases.
  • Dust, noise and debris will be controlled as best as possible.
  • Two-way through traffic on Old Mill Trail will be maintained. Intermittent delays should be expected.

Work hours

The majority of the work will take place on weekdays from 7 a.m. to 7 p.m. with some exceptions outside of these hours for safety, including some weekends.

TTC service

The station will be open during the project. Subway and bus service will be maintained throughout construction. Bus boarding locations will change to during phases of the work.

All work related to this project is scheduled for completion by December 2018.

Thank you for your patience as we work to improve transit infrastructure.
