Humber College stop leads pack of new progress photos for Finch West LRT project

There’s been a number of construction elements recently added into Toronto’s Finch West light rail transit project. Here’s a roundup, including work at the Humber College stop as well as powering up the Maintenance and Storage Facility.

In between all those construction pylons, lies some important pieces of new transit coming to Finch Avenue West.

We thought we’d let the pictures speak for themselves.

So here’s what that progress looks like, as well as the details behind the work.
