Donlands Station - second exit/entrance and Easier Access project update
Upcoming preliminary investigative work / utility locating
Project description and purpose:
As part of the TTC’s commitment to safety and modernization, Donlands Station (on Line 2 Bloor-Danforth) will be getting a second exit/automatic entrance to improve customer safety and convenience. The TTC’s Easier Access Program makes stations accessible for everyone with the addition of new elevators. To minimize the duration of overall construction, TTC will build the Donlands Station Easier Access project at the same time as the Second Exit project. For more information on this project, please visit our project page.
Current stage of work - preliminary investigative construction activities:Over the next year, a variety of preliminary investigative construction activities are required before the new underground structures (second exit/entrance and elevators) can be built. Contractors on TTC’s behalf will undertake some of these activities (including the work noted below). Other preliminary investigative construction activities will be managed by property-owners such as Bell, Enbridge, Toronto Water etc. (and they will notify you of any of their works).
Utility locating details - as early as May 21, 2019 – May, 30, 2019.
Crews will be pumping water from the previously installed wells located at Strathmore Blvd. and Donlands Ave. into a water tank, and later from the water tank into a hydro-vac truck. This process helps to identify the location of underground infrastructure, such as utilities.
Construction crews and equipment will be present along your street and some trucks/equipment will remain overnight. During the day, construction noise is expected.
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.
The majority of work will take place between Monday to Friday, 7 a.m. and 7 p.m.
