for a construction project.

The TTC is detouring buses along this route, while the intersection is closed:

  • 72B Pape via Commissioners and Queens Quay.

(The City’s website doesn’t specify the nature of the construction. The TTC identifies it as “bridge repairs” — possibly on the underside of the Frederick G. Gardiner Expressway, which extends overhead above the intersection. While the City states that the intersection is closed “in all directions”, apparently eastbound traffic from Queens Quay East can still pass through the southeast corner of the intersection onto Lake Shore Boulevard East.)


72B Pape via Commissioners and Queens Quay

From 9 p.m. Tuesday, September 25 until 5 a.m. Wednesday, September 26, south- and westbound buses operate along their regular route to Cherry Street and Lake Shore Boulevard East, then detour:

northward along Parliament Street;
westward along Front Street East; and then
