A $3.6-billion expansion of LRT includes previously unbudgeted infrastructure work and will force the O-Train Trillium Line to shut down for at least 16 months, the Citizen has learned.

This is the first major public reveal of plans for the second phase of LRT since summer 2015. Information trickling down from the Stage 2 office ahead of a presentation at city hall on Friday indicates the rail expansion will be completed in three stages.
