TTC: Open House for Pape Station Modernization Project

TORONTO, ONTARIO--(Marketwire - March 3, 2008) - In August 2008, the TTC will begin a two year Station Modernization Program at Pape Station that will upgrade station finishes, integrating public art, enhance the street presence of station entrances, improve lighting and signage at all station levels, and improve public access.

Key improvements will include:

- Upgrades to all finish materials, including integrated public artwork, new signage and lighting;

- A modified bus terminal layout, including a weather-protected waiting area beside the main station entrance;

- New elevators to provide full accessibility between the station entrance, bus platforms, station concourse, and subway platforms; and

- A new second exit from the east end of both platforms to street level.

The purpose of this public open house is to present the design, including the finish materials and artwork, and find out what to expect during construction.
