The TTC is making progress towards its goal of making all of its stations accessible as part of the Easier Access program. This program includes the installation of elevators, accessible doors, and updated signage and wayfinding at all subway stations.
Construction at Spadina Station (Line 1) has begun and will be completed by the end of 2024.
What we are doing and why
The TTC is building two new elevators to create a barrier-free path from the street to the subway platform level. The Easier Access improvements will include:
- Two new elevators, one to each passenger platform
- Improved signage
- CCTV – Security cameras inside the station
- Public art installation as a part of the TTC Public Art Program
What to expect
The first major phase of work will include shoring and excavation activities for the new elevator shafts, located on north east and south west corners of Spadina Road and Lowther Avenue. Work will be completed in two phases, starting with construction of Elevator 2 (E2) on Lowther Avenue west of Spadina Road and the moving onto Elevator 1 (E1) on Lowther Avenue east of Spadina Road.
Traffic and pedestrian details
- Traffic on Spadina Road maintained with lane restrictions.
- Lowther Avenue west is scheduled to be closed for vehicle access to and from Spadina Road from September 19, 2022, until Q4 2023.
- Sidewalk closures / detours will be required.
Work will typically take place Monday to Friday between 7 a.m. and 7 p.m. Some work on weekends and overnight may be required.
Subway service at the station will be maintained throughout construction.
