Construction TTC Lawrence Station – Bus Loop Tunnel
Construction Notice from TTC (contacts below)
Bus Loop Tunnel Concrete Rehabilitation
Mid-May to October 2012
As part of the Toronto Transit Commission’s ongoing state of good repair work, beginning mid-May the TTC will begin concrete restoration work in the bus loop tunnel at the Lawrence Station, as well as minor work to the associated fan/vent shafts situated at the parking lot at 3080 Yonge Street. The work is primarily contained within the bus loop level and is scheduled in two stages over the next six months in order to maintain bus operations in the station during the project.
On May 5, 2012, the contractor will begin some preliminary work inside the bus loop area in preparation for the removal of the deteriorated concrete. One side of the bus platform will be closed and bus loading areas will be altered.
Work – Bus Loop
The major rehabilitation work in the station bus loop will begin in mid-May, which includes the removal and restoration of deteriorating concrete of the bus roadway, tunnel walls and curb. Improvements will be made to the expansion joints. The configuration of the bus roadway and platform will remain the same at completion of the project.
Hoarding and dust tight partitions will be installed at the bus loop level to separate the work zone from customers.
Work – Fan and Vent Shafts
During the concrete rehabilitation work to the fan and vent shafts situated at the parking lot of 3080 Yonge Street, access to and from the lot will be maintained, but reduced to one lane at the gate. Some night work may be required for certain aspects of the vent shaft work.
Work Hours and Night Work
The work will be largely confined to the hours of 7 a.m. to 6 p.m. on weekdays. Occasionally, the contractor may need to work on weekends or later to complete key operations on the same day. There is a need however, for overnight work when concrete removal is being conducted in areas of the bus loop that are directly above the subway tunnel structure. While efforts will be made to keep noise levels to a minimum, noise will be evident when some equipment is in full operation.
Equipment will include air compressors, jackhammers and concrete saw-cutters.
Station Access and Transit Service
Pedestrian access to the station will be maintained for the duration of the project.
Subway operations will not be affected by this work.
Buses will continue to operate inside the station.
We regret any inconvenience that may be caused as a result of this work.
