Ice Storm Fallout Continues



Southern Ontario is digging out today from a significant winter storm that dumped inches of snow and topped everything off with ice pellets and freezing rain. Schools are closed across the province, and the commute in the Greater Toronto Area is arduous. If you have the option, you should probably stay home.

York Region detours

(Updated at 3:53 p.m.)

York Region Transit (YRT) reports that it has detoured buses on the 10 York University-Woodbridge route and that the Toronto Transit Commission (TTC) is also detouring buses on the 165D Weston Road North route.

The detours result from damaged hydro lines.

YRT is detouring buses on the 10 York University-Woodbridge route in both directions at Ansley Grove Road and Highway 7. Buses travel east to Interchange Drive, south and east to Jane Street, then south to Steeles Avenue West and the regular route.

The TTC is detouring buses on the 165D Weston Road North route in both directions at Steeles Avenue West and Weston Road. Buses travel west along Steeles to Pine Valley Drive, north to Langstaff Road, then east to Weston and the regular route.

Scarborough RT shut down

BlogTO is reporting that the Scarborough RT has been shut down due to fallen trees obstructing the tracks. Shuttle buses are carrying the load between McCowan and Kennedy. Since a number of stoplights are out and are thus being treated as four-way stops, travel times between McCowan and Kennedy are extremely long. Fortunately, the subway continues to operate with no significant delays. The same cannot be said about any other vehicle the TTC operates.

The Ontario Provincial Police logged 220 accidents overnight on area highways. The forecast for today continuing wet snow and rain. Stay tuned to local media for updates.

The delays and cancellations affect the Lakeshore East and West lines and the Milton line.

GO is not reporting delays on any of its bus services.
