What we are doing and why:

TTC is working to build elevators that will make King Station accessible.


To facilitate this work, crews are required to conduct utility works for the future E3 elevator at Yonge Street and Colborne Street. During this time, the current work zone layout will shift into the center lane configuration. This utility work will begin as early as April 22, 2024 until June 2024.

What to expect:

  • Construction crews and construction vehicles will be present in the area.
  • Work is conducted in stages, protective hoarding will be in place, street parking/roadways will be reduced in areas of construction.
  • Driveways will remain accessible during construction, however, it may be restricted.


    Noise, vibration and work hours:

  • Noise, dust and vibration associated with construction can be expected with this work. Efforts will be made to keep levels to a minimum.
  • Majority of the work will take place between 7 a.m. and 7 p.m., Monday to Friday. As permitted, some weekend and overnight work may be required during the course of this project for safety and efficiency.


A map of the construction area is included below. Note that hoarding on Colborne Street is to remain in place during this Yonge Street configuration.

Traffic Management:



  • Yonge Street will remain reduced to one lane in each direction for the project to complete work safely.
  • One lane between Scott Street to Yonge Street on Colborne Street will be maintained with no access to southbound Yonge Street.
  • Local traffic only will be allowed on Jordan and Melinda Streets.
  • The “no left turn” signage has been eliminated at Northbound Yonge and King Streets as well as Westbound King Street and Jordan Street.
  • Pedestrian access will be maintained at all times with periodic detours.
  • No impact to TTC streetcars, buses or subway service is expected during construction.
