Broadview / Danforth construction:
TTC detours, starting July 20



Update — Friday, July 25, 4:51 p.m.: Some buses are looping along Parliament Street, instead of River Street between Queen and Dundas Streets East.


The TTC is upgrading streetcar infrastructure — including wiring and tracks — on Broadview Avenue and at Broadview Station starting Sunday, July 20.

It’s detouring streetcars operating along these routes, while the work proceeds:

It’s also replacing streetcars with shuttle buses along Broadview Avenue between Broadview Station and Queen Street East.

Work on Broadview may also affect buses operating to and from Broadview Station terminal:

  • 62 Mortimer;
  • 87 Cosburn; and
  • 100 Flemingdon Park.

Detours and service changes continue until August 30.

While streetcars are detouring off Broadview Avenue, TTC crews are:

  • rewiring the streetcar overhead from north of Queen Street to Broadview Station. (Crews have already upgraded major intersections with crossing streetcar routes). Upgrading the overhead wire is necessary for operating the TTC’s new accessible streetcars.
  1. Crews will perform parts of the rewiring job overnight to avoid risking the safety of passengers in Broadview Station and between Gerrard and Queen Streets East, where streetcars are still operating.
  2. They’ll use two to three TTC overhead trucks with hydraulic equipment. You may hear a beeping sound from back-up alarms on the trucks.
  3. Traffic will continue along Broadview Avenue through the work areas although crews may restrict traffic to single lanes.
  • replacing worn rail at four streetcar stops on Broadview Avenue.
  1. This requires four to five days work at each location.
  2. Crews start working as early as 7 a.m. and will aim to finish by 9:30 p.m. each day.
  3. They’ll reduce traffic lanes will be reduced at each location to create a safe work zone.
  4. They’ll break up and remove the concrete to expose the rail along the length of the streetcar stop (about 36 metres or 108 feet). Then, they’ll replace the rail, weld and grind the rail and place new concrete. They’ll use the track allowance beyond the active work area to store equipment and materials for this rail work.
  • repairing the track leading into Broadview Station streetcar platforms.

87 Cosburn

Originally, the City of Toronto planned to upgrade water-mains on Broadview Avenue north of Danforth Avenue, at the same time as the TTC upgraded its infrastructure. To keep buses on schedule during that project, which the City has now postponed, the TTC planned to operate one more bus along the route, without adjusting the frequency of the service.

Since the City has postponed the project, the extra bus is no longer necessary.
