King Station - Easier Access Project Update

Utility Investigation (as early as February 24, 2023)
Effective February 24, 2023

What we are doing and why:

The TTC’s Easier Access Program is making subway stations accessible. TTC is currently working to build elevators that will make King Station accessible. Construction crews on behalf of TTC started construction work at street-level on Elevator E1 on Melinda Street and Elevator E3 Yonge and Colborne Streets in January 2023.

As part of this construction, crews will be cutting asphalt within the street-level hoarded area on Melinda Street (Elevator E1) on Friday, February 24, 2023. This will be followed with daylighting of utilities by a hydrovac truck to begin on Monday, February 27, 2023.  Street level construction work related to the elevator will continue moving forward and is scheduled to take place on Monday to Friday, 7 a.m. to 7 p.m.
