The Project

The City of Toronto and the TTC are planning a new subway line that will connect Line 1 Yonge-University (downtown) to Line 2 Bloor-Danforth, east of the Don River. This line will relieve crowding on Line 1, at Bloor-Yonge Station, and on the surface transit routes coming in and out of downtown.

Field testing in support of planning and design work

As part of the investigative phase for planning and design of the Relief Line, further tests will be conducted within the study area to gather essential data. The work will involve obtaining ground samples, which requires some drilling and coring, in the vicinity of the Relief Line alignment.

Test Locations

Testing is ongoing on Colgate Avenue, just west of Carlaw Avenue for approximately one month starting May 28. Traffic on Colgate Avenue through the work area will be maintained. The western portion of the driveway at this location will be closed during work hours to establish a safe work area. The eastern portion of the driveway will be maintained at all times.

Testing is also ongoing on Morse Street between Queen Street and Eastern Avenue for approximately three weeks starting week of June 11.

Work Hours

Drilling takes place between 9:30 a.m. and 3:30 p.m. The work area will be set up and removed shortly before and after the above noted times.
