Morningside bridge construction diverts TTC buses

Update: April 30, 12:18 p.m.: Transit Toronto reader Jason Nery pointed out that the buses will travel along Sewells Road and not Staines Road. Thanks, Jason.

The City of Toronto has started to rebuild the overpasses that carry CN and CP Rail tracks across Finch Avenue East and Morningside Avenue and reconstruct the roadways and the intersection of the two streets.

The Finch Avenue project will continue until July. The Morningside Avenue project will continue until early 2009.

The TTC is diverting buses on the 116 Morningside route during the projects, which will remove the former bus loop at the north-west corner of Morningside and Old Finch Avenues.

TTC buses now loop on several streets in the Morningside area.

Northbound buses operate along their former route to Morningside and Sewells Road, then proceed:

eastward along Sewells;
northward along Littles Road; and then
westward along Old Finch to Morningside,
where the buses proceed along their regular southbound route.

You can see a map of the diversion here.

At its meeting on April 23, the Toronto Transit Commission tentatively approved a number of service improvements for 2008, including extending the 39 Finch East route to Valley Centre Drive. The TTC won’t be able to extend the route easterly until the City has finished rebuilding the Finch overpass and roadway.
