Markham Road / Sheppard construction affects TTC service this weekend



The City of Toronto is closing parts of the intersection of Sheppard Avenue East and Markham Road this weekend as part of a project to upgrade the sewers.

From 1 a.m. tomorrow, Saturday, November 14 until 5 a.m. on Monday, November 16, the City will close Markham Road at Sheppard to north-south through traffic. Vehicles can turn right from Markham onto Sheppard, but can’t turn left.

The City is also restricting Sheppard Avenue East to just one lane in each direction throughout the weekend.

Although the TTC hasn’t confirmed how this project affects bus service, it may have to detour or delay buses operating along the 85 Sheppard East, 102 Markham Rd and 385 Sheppard East overnight routes.

102 Markham Rd

From 1 a.m. on Saturday, November 14 until 5 a.m. on Monday, November 16, southbound buses likely operate along their regular route to Markham Road and Nugget Avenue / McLevin Avenue, then detour:

eastward along McLevin;
southward along Malvern Street and Progress Avenue; and then
westward along Milner Avenue to Markham,
resuming their regular route southward along Markham.

Southbound buses may skip their regular stops on Markham Road at Nugget Avenue, opposite Verne Crescent, north of Sheppard Avenue East, south of Sheppard East and at Milner Avenue.

Northbound buses likely reverse this routing.


Northbound buses may skip their regular stops on Markham Road at Sheppard Avenue East, Verne Crescent and McLevin Avenue.

85 Sheppard East
385 Sheppard East overnight

From 1 a.m. on Saturday, November 14 until 5 a.m. on Monday, November 16, passengers should expect delays on Sheppard Avenue East at Markham Road.


The City started work on a project to install new watermains and upgrade the sewers along Sheppard Avenue East between Scunthorpe Road and Gateforth Drive in mid-September.

Although not directly part of the upcoming project to build the Sheppard East light rail Transit City line, the City moved the schedule for the water and sewer project ahead from 2016 to better co-ordinate construction on Sheppard.

The City also closed the intersection during the weekend of October 24 to 26 to install new watermains.
