What to expect


The first major phase of work will include shoring and excavation activities for the new elevator shafts, located on the north-west and south-east 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 then moving onto Elevator 1 (E1) on east side of Spadina Road.
