Today’s transit construction project is the foundation for a modern, reliable transit tomorrow.
The Finch West light rail transit (LRT) project is underway right now, with major construction scheduled for Spring 2019. This light rail project will bring an additional 11 kilometres and 18 stops of public transit, as well renew aging infrastructure, such as the Highway 400 overpass at Finch Avenue West.
During design, construction and operations, the Finch West LRT will also provide jobs and opportunities in the community and across the Greater Toronto and Hamilton Area (GTHA).
The project is being delivered through a public-private partnership (P3). Metrolinx is the owner. Toronto Transit Commission (TTC) will operate it. And, Mosaic Transit Group is designing and building these features:
- An 11-kilometre LRT line, running along Finch Avenue from the new TTC Finch West Subway Station at Keele Street to Humber College.
- Accessible streetscapes for drivers, transit riders, cyclists, and pedestrians.
- 18 stops, including 16 surface stops, plus an underground interchange station at Finch West LRT station (connecting to the new Toronto-York-Spadina Subway Extension), and one below-grade terminal stop at Humber College with transit connections to GO, Miway, Viva, and Züm
What to expect when Finch West LRT is complete?
- Rapid transit for the Jamestown, Rexdale and Black Creek neighbourhoods, connecting communities and supporting growth in Northwest Toronto.
- The Finch West LRT will operate in a dedicated lane in the centre of the roadway, separate from regular traffic.
