Spadina Station is a construction junction

September 16th, 2015 · No Comments

Construction, lane reductions, and bus diversions are here to stay at Spadina Road and Bloor Street, at least until December, and quite possibly well beyond.

Work is underway to excavate the northbound side of Spadina Road near Spadina Station to make necessary repairs to the roof of the subway below. The entire bus loop roadway is also being removed to expose the subway roof.

Station access is maintained for pedestrians, but the buses will now loop at Spadina Circle (just north of College Street) instead. In its service bulletin the TTC calls the work “structural rehabilitation and repaving of the bus loop”.

This is Phase 2 of the work. Curiously, Phase 1 – excavating the southbound lanes of the west side of Spadina Road – will commence after Phase 2, and the start date and duration of it are yet to be announced.
