Queen / McCaul track repairs:
TTC detour, November 28 until November 30



The City of Toronto is closing:

  • Queen Street West between Bay and Yonge Street

this weekend to allow private contractors to repair the pedestrian bridge linking the CF Toronto Eaton Centre with The Hudson’s Bay Company’s Queen Street store.

Since closing the street requires the TTC to detour its streetcars, it will take advantage of the opportunity to repair its tracks at the intersection of Queen Street West and McCaul Street.

All day Saturday, November 28 and Sunday, November 29, the TTC is detouring streetcars operating along these routes:

  • 301 Queen overnight; and
  • 501 Queen.

Shuttle buses replace the cars, operating along Queen Streets West and East between Bathurst and Sherbourne Streets.
