Construction work is set to get underway today on a project that will improve access to the TTC’s Museum Station.
The $26 million project, which will include the construction of two new elevators and a new secondary entrance/exit at Queen’s Park Circle, will also “enhance safety as well as customer service,” the TTC said in a news release.
To accommodate the work, drivers should note that a number of lane restrictions will be in place on Queen’s Park, between Bloor St. W, and Queen’s Park Circle. The complete list of road closures and restrictions are on the City of Toronto’s Road Restrictions web page.
The TTC said two southbound lanes, one northbound lane, and a cycling detour will, however, be maintained throughout the first phase of construction, which is expected to run until the end of the year.
Museum Station will also remain open and pedestrian access will be maintained along Queen’s Park throughout construction.
Motorists are being advised to use Bay and St. George streets as alternative routes, especially those heading northbound.
Drivers are also urged to allow extra time to get to and from destinations near the construction work zone.
