As part of TTC’s commitment to provide accessible transit, work is underway at the Dupont and Spadina intersection to install new elevators that will make Dupont Station accessible to all customers. Preparation work began in fall 2015 to relocate underground utilities.

Dupont Station is expected to be accessible by the end of 2018 and traffic lanes in the area will be reduced for approximately two years. This longer-term work will include the following station improvements:

  • Three elevators to access all levels of the station
  • Accessible fare gates
  • Barrier-free path to the subway platform
  • Improved signage
  • CCTV – Security cameras

  • Elevator 2 (E2) construction work will begin as early as mid-March 2016 and traffic lanes will be reduced within the intersection of Dupont and Spadina for approximately one year. This work includes the excavation of the elevator shaft for Elevator 2 within the City right of way (at the northwest corner of the Spadina and Dupont intersection).
  • When E2 construction is complete, Elevator 1 (E1) & Elevator 3 (E3) construction work will begin (on the southeast side of the intersection within the City right of way). Traffic lanes will be reduced for approximately one year until the end of 2018.
