More construction projects affect transit



A short-term construction project at Toronto Pearson International Airport this weekend, and a long-term project in Markham which recently began, will affect transit service. Another long-term construction project in Vaughan also recently ended and regular service has resumed.


The construction projects affect these routes:

GO Transit: 34 Brampton Local

Mississauga Transit: 7 Airport

Toronto Transit Commission: 58 Malton, 192 Airport Rocket, 300 Bloor-Danforth, 307 Eglinton West

York Region Transit: 1 Highway 7, 2A 14th Avenue, 9 Stouffville, 10 York University-Woodbridge, 11 Woodbridge, 85 16th Avenue, 201 Markham GO Shuttle, 303 Cornell Express.


Markham

On Monday, July 30, the Region of York will begin a project to reconstruct Ninth Line between Highway 7 and 16th Avenue.

YRT is diverting buses on several routes during the project.

Westbound buses on the 1 Highway 7 service will begin their routes at the Markham-Stouffville Hospital, but proceed eastward along Church Street, southward along Bur Oak Avenue and then westward along Highway 7, resuming their regular route at Highway 7 and Ninth Line. Eastbound buses will reverse this routing.

Westbound buses on the 1 Highway 7 off-peak branch that usually operates along Church Street, will follow the same westbound diversion as buses operating on the main 1 Highway 7 route. Eastbound buses on this branch, however, will only travel along Church Street to Church and Wooten Way, then divert southward along Wooten, eastward along Highway 7 and northward along Bur Oak Avenue and westward along Church to the Markham-Stouffville Hospital.

Westbound buses on the 2A 14th Avenue service will begin their routes at the Markham-Stouffville Hospital, but proceed eastward along Church Street, southward along Bur Oak Avenue then westward along Highway 7, resuming their regular route at Highway 7 and Ninth Line. Eastbound buses will reverse this routing.

Southbound buses on the 9 Stouffville service will operate along their regular routes to Ninth Line and 16th Avenue, then divert eastward along 16th, southward along Bur Oak Avenue and then eastward along Church Street to Markham-Stouffville Hospital. Northbound buses will reverse this routing.

Westbound buses on the 85 16th Avenue route will begin their routes at the Markham-Stouffville Hospital, but proceed eastward along Church Street, northward along Bur Oak Avenue and westward along 16th, resuming their regular routes at 16th and Ninth Line. Eastbound buses will reverse this routing.

Westbound buses on the 201 Markham GO Shuttle will operate on their regular routes to the Markham-Stouffville Hospital, then proceed eastward along Church Street, southward along Bur Oak Avenue and westward along Highway 7, resuming their regular routes at Highway 7 and Ninth Line. Eastbound buses will reverse this routing.

Westbound buses on the 303 Cornell Express service will operate on their regular routes to the Markham-Stouffville Hospital, then proceed eastward along Church Street, southward along Bur Oak Avenue and westward along Highway 7, resuming their regular routes at Highway 7 and Ninth Line. Eastbound buses will reverse this routing.


Toronto Pearson International Airport

Between 7 a.m. on Saturday, July 28 and 7 a.m. on Sunday, July 29, the Greater Toronto Airports Authority will close Silver Dart Drive between Jetliner and Renforth Drives so that GTAA crews can begin to demolish the bridges that previously provided vehicle access to Terminal 2.

GO Transit will divert buses on the 34 Brampton Local route during this work. Westbound buses will operate northward along Airport Road, eastward along Bresler Drive, northward along Campus Road, eastward along Elmbank Road and then northward along Network Road and then various airport access roads to Terminal 1 and then resuming their regular route. The closure does not affect the routing of eastbound buses.

The demolition may also affect service on Mississauga Transit’s 7 Airport route and the TTC’s 58 Malton, 192 Airport Rocket, 300 Bloor-Danforth and 307 Eglinton West routes, so passengers should expect delays or detours.


Vaughan

A long-term City of Vaughan project to replace sewers and reconstruct Woodbridge Avenue has ended and YRT buses have resumed regular service on the 10 York University-Woodbridge and 11 Woodbridge routes.
