TTC detours streetcars during Gerrard bridge construction,
starting July 18



Starting Monday, July 18, the City of Toronto is closing

  • Gerrard Street East between River Street and Blackburn Street / St. Matthews Road

to repair the bridge across the Don River and the Don Valley Parkway.

The TTC is repairing the streetcar tracks during the project. It’s also detouring streetcars operating along the 506 Carlton and 306 Carlton overnight routes, while the bridge is closed.


506 Carlton
306 Carlton overnight

From Monday, July 18 until Monday, September 12, westbound streetcars operate along their regular route to Gerrard Street East and Broadview Avenue, then detour:

southward along Broadview;
westward along Dundas Street East; and then
northward along Parliament Street to Gerrard East,
resuming their regular routes northward along Parliament.

Westbound cars skip their regular stops

  • on Gerrard Street East at St. Matthews Road, River, Sumach, Sackville and Parliament Streets.

Instead, westbound cars drop off and pick up passengers at temporary stops

  • on Broadview Avenue at Mount Stephen Street and Dundas Street East,
  • on Dundas Street East at Munro, River, Sumach, Sackville and Parliament Streets and
  • on Parliament Street at Oak Street and Gerrard Street East.

Eastbound streetcars operate along their regular route to Gerrard Street East and Parliament Street, then detour:
