DRT detours for Oshawa construction started April 21



On Thursday, April 21, the Region of Durham and the City of Oshawa closed:

  • McNaughton Avenue between Ritson Road South and Drew Street

to resume a regional project to replace water mains and sanitary sewers under McNaughton and Ritson Road South.

Durham Region Transit is detouring buses operating along the 406 Dean route during the project.

Construction continues until early June.

406 Dean

Starting Thursday, April 28, southbound buses operate along their regular route to First Avenue and Drew Street, then detour:

southward along Drew;
eastward along Toronto Avenue;
northward along Ritson Road South; and then
eastward along Kitchener Avenue to Dean Avenue,
resuming their regular route eastward along Dean.

Southbound buses skip their regular stop

  • on Dean Avenue west of Ritson Road South.

Instead, southbound buses drop off and pick up passengers at a temporary stop

  • on Ritson Road South north of Jackson Avenue.

Northbound buses operate along their regular route to Ritson Road South and Toronto Avenue, then detour:

westward along Toronto; and then
northward along Drew Street to First Avenue / McNaughton Avenue,
resuming their regular route westward along First.

Northbound buses skip their regular stops

  • on Ritson Road South north of Jackson Avenue and

The Region previously closed Ritson Road South between Toronto Street and Bloor Street East from Tuesday, April 6 until late July for the same project.
