Streetcars and buses detour off Bathurst south of King,
starting October 19



Update — November 2: Buses operating along the 310 Bathurst overnight route resumed regular service yesterday, Sunday, November 1.


Update — October 19, 11 p.m.: this post now details how the construction affects buses operating along the new 145 Downtown / Humber Bay express route, which started today.


Starting tomorrow, Monday, October 19, the City of Toronto is closing all northbound lanes of Bathurst Street between Front Street West and Fleet Street. While the street is closed, City and TTC contractors will repair the streetcar tracks. They also will completely excavate the intersection of Bathurst Street and Fort York Boulevard during the weekend of October 23 to 26.

Repairing the tracks now keeps the streetcar right of way in a good state of repair until City and TTC crews can start a longer-term project to rebuild the tracks, sidewalks, roadway and bridge south of Front Street West in 2010.

The TTC is detouring buses and streetcars operating along the 145 Downtown / Humber Bay express, 310 Bathurst overnight and 511 Bathurst routes during this project.
