The Red North Interim Station Improvement project will begin tonight, resulting in the short-term closure of the Granville station beginning at 11:59 p.m. Friday, June 1, for up to six weeks.
Granville is the first of seven stations that will be temporarily closed for several weeks this year while crews perform capital maintenance work to the stationhouses, platform, adjacent tracks and track bed and viaduct.
Stations along the north Red Line are some of the oldest on the system, with most being built in the early 1900s and in need of being rebuilt from the ground up. This $86 million project will not only improve the quality and experience for riders and neighbors, it also will provide a life-extension for the seven stations that will last for many years until a more comprehensive reconstruction plan is approved and fully funded.
While the Granville station is temporarily closed, Red Line customers will be directed to use either the nearby Thorndale or Loyola stations, two and three blocks away, respectively. Customers also can board northbound #147 Outer Drive Express buses from Sheridan Road to improve their travel time to the Loyola station.
