Dundas West / Bathurst overhead wiring upgrades:
TTC detours, November 29 to December 2



TTC crews are installing new overhead streetcar wiring at the intersection of Dundas Street West and Bathurst Street early tomorrow, Wednesday, November 29, until early Friday, December 2.

From 12:01 until 5 a.m. each night, the crews work with two to three overhead trucks with hydraulic equipment. You may hear beeping when the trucks are backing up or notice bright lights from the equipment.

Upgrading the overhead wiring is necessary so the TTC can operate its new accessible Toronto Flexity streetcars through the intersection. Over the past few years, electrical crews have been upgrading the overhead wire system along all streetcar routes in the city.

Crews may block some traffic lanes while they work.

The TTC is detouring streetcars operating along this route, while work proceeds:

It is also operating shuttle buses to replace the cars between Lansdowne and Spadina Avenues.

Since the TTC has temporarily replaced streetcars with buses along the 511 Bathurst route, the work will not affect service along that route or along the 307 Bathurst overnight route.

The TTC originally scheduled this work for overnight from early Wednesday, November 23 until Saturday, November 26.
