Dundas West Station construction:
TTC detours start March 21

Update, Sunday, June 18 2017, 6:04 p.m.: The TTC has reopened Vincent Yard to store and maintain trains overnight.

Update, Monday, May 2, 11:31 a.m.: Water-main construction continues until Sunday, June 19. Streetcars resume regular service 5 a.m. Monday, June 20.

Starting Monday, March 21 City of Toronto crews are upgrading the water-main under the south streetcar tracks in:

  • Dundas West Station terminal.

The Toronto Water activity blocks streetcars operating along this route from entering the terminal:

The TTC is also detouring the cars to accommodate the work.


Buses serving the 40 Junction and 168 Symington routes and streetcars serving the 504 King route continue to operate through Dundas West Station terminal.

Improving the water-main at Dundas West is part of a longer-term project to upgrade nearby Vincent (or “Keele”) Yard. The TTC is rehabilitating the pipes and the sprinkler system at the yard to make sure it can again safely store subways trains on the site overnight.

Toronto Water crews are using a high-pressured vacuum system to dig down to the underground water-main. To make sure passengers are safe, crews will first work overnight for about three nights, likely March 21, 22 and 23.

Construction at Dundas West Station and the detour continue until May 2 June 19.
