Construction will be complete this summer ahead of service launch in September. ION aBRT is the first step towards bringing LRT to Cambridge. Watch for public information sessions later this year on the transit project assessment process for Stage 2 LRT to Ainslie Street transit terminal.

Hydro One construction Hydro One’s work to relocate and bury a section of the existing overhead transmission infrastructure is continuing to progress along Hydro One’s right-of-way, between the Fairview Park Mall parking lot and Courtland Avenue East. This work will accommodate the future construction of ION. In recent weeks, crews removed the old conductors (wires) from the existing towers along the right-of-way and will be removing these towers in the coming weeks. In addition, construction activities to complete the grading and restoration in both junctions will continue. Hydro One anticipates the project will be completed this summer.

Our website, is dedicated to ION construction. The site features an interactive ION route map, information on ION stops as well as an opportunity to sign-up for regular construction updates. A link to Grand River Transit (GRT) is also included in construction updates for areas where construction may affect GRT service. The website contains the most up-to-date information on all aspects of ION construction.
