TTC, YRT detour buses during watermain construction
for subway project, starting March 1



Update — Thursday, March 1, 6:51 p.m.: Ooops! We forgot when we posted this information that the construction would affect more than just TTC service. YRT has also announced detours for Viva buses operating along the Viva orange route.

This post now includes information on the YRT / Viva detour.


During the next phase of construction for the ongoing project to extend the 1 Yonge - University - Spadina subway northwest from Downsview Station to York University and Vaughan, City of Toronto and TTC contractors are relocating a watermain under Keele Street north of Finch Avenue West.

During the work, the City will close:

  • northbound lanes of Keele Street just north of Finch Avenue West and
  • westbound lanes of the York University busway just east of Keele Street.

While the work proceeds, the TTC is detouring buses operating along the 41 Keele, 107 Keele North and 196 York University rocket routes while the work proceeds. York Region Transit is detouring Viva buses operating along the Viva orange route.

The lane closures and detours likely continue until May.
