Queens Quay West construction:
TTC detours, May 7, 8



This weekend, TTC crews are upgrading the streetcar right of way

  • on Queens Quay West between Bathurst Street and the portal to the Bay Street tunnel; and
  • in Queens Quay / Spadina Loop.

The TTC is detouring streetcars operating along these routes:

  • 317 Spadina overnight;
  • 509 Harbourfront; and
  • 510 Spadina,

all day Saturday and Sunday morning and afternoon, while work proceeds.

The TTC is operating shuttle buses to replace the cars:

You may board the shuttle buses by any door at any time, if you have a proof of payment — such as a transfer or pass. PRESTO card users must board by the front door and pay their fares with cash, since the TTC has not yet equipped all buses with PRESTO card readers.

Crews are working only on the streetcar right-of-way track allowance:

  • Bathurst Street to Lower Spadina Avenue: modifying the top of the poles in the streetcar right-of-way.
  • Bay Street tunnel portal to Queens Quay / Spadina Loop: augmenting the underground communication system with 1,830 metres (6,000 feet) of new fibre-optic cables. Crews will be working inside the underground cable chambers on the streetcar right-of-way and in the loop.

Work continues next weekend, Saturday, May 14 and Sunday, May 15.
