Metrolinx upgrading Lansdowne overpass:
TTC detours, March 28 to 30



The City of Toronto is closing:

  • Lansdowne Avenue just between Shirley Street (just south of Dundas Street West) and Rideau Avenue (north of Queen Street West)

this weekend, as Metrolinx crews continue rehabilitating the overpass carrying GO Transit trains across the roadway. The work is part of major projects to upgrade the Georgetown South Rail Corridor and to build the Union Pearson Express line.

All day Saturday and Sunday and early Monday, crews are delivering equipment and removing the final girder from the bridge. The TTC is detouring buses operating along this route, while the street is closed:

  • 47 Lansdowne.
