"Six Points" construction continues, further
affects MiWay, TTC buses, starting February 24



SixPointsConstructionMapFINAL.jpg

After more than ten years of planning, consulting, engineering and designing, the City of Toronto has started Phase 2 of a major construction project to redesign, rebuild and simplify the “Six Points” intersection in central Etobicoke — the complex junction where Bloor and Dundas Streets West meet Kipling Avenue.

(The City already completed some early work — Phase 1 — on the project from 2014 until 2016. During Phase 1, crews worked in the former Westwood cinema lands to prepare the site for new infrastructure — sewers, water-mains, other underground utilities and roadways — clearing trees and grading the land.)

During the project, the City intends to:

  • build a new road network and “at-grade” intersection at Dundas, Bloor and Kipling, with Bloor continuing across Kipling;
  • improve pedestrian facilities including wide boulevards, trees, and street furniture;
  • improve pedestrian access to Kipling Station;
  • improve cycling facilities with separate bike lanes on all major streets; and
  • make more land available for parkettes, public art, new development and other amenities.

It’s ending the detours for buses along these routes:

  • 44 Kipling South;
  • 45 Kipling;
  • 46 Martin Grove;
  • 944 Kipling South express; and
  • 945 Kipling express.

MiWay is warning passengers to expect major delays along these routes:

  • 76 City Centre / Subway;
  • 101 / 101A Dundas express;
  • 108 Meadowale Business express; and
  • 109 Meadowvale express.

Starting Sunday, February 24, MiWay buses heading toward Islington Station operate along the new section of Dundas Street West and Dunbloor Road, before resuming their regular routes eastbound along “old” Dundas West. Buses heading away from Islington operate along their regular route to Bloor Street West and Dunbloor Road / “new” Dundas Street West, turning left onto “new” Dundas and proceeding westward. West of Kipling Avenue, they resume their regular routes along “old” Dundas.


During this phase of construction, the City is also:

  • activating new signals at the intersection of “new” Dundas Street West with Kipling Avenue;
  • re-opening the west bus ramp from Viking Lane / St. Albans Road to southbound Kipling and from southbound Kipling to Viking / St. Albans.

It’s closing:

  • the Dundas and Bloor Streets West bridges over Kipling Avenue;
  • the northbound ramp from Kipling Avenue to Dundas West; and
  • the traffic island at the intersection of Beamish Drive with Bloor Street West.

Temporarily, the City is:

  • closing Beamish Drive at Dundas Street West;
  • closing the access from St. Albans Road and Dundas Street West to new roads A and B;
  • maintaining Dunbloor Road with just one lane for traffic in each direction; and
  • closing bike lanes until the contractors have finished improving the streetscape.

The City is also upgrading pedestrian amenities by:

  • opening a temporary paved sidewalk on the north side of Dundas West between Six Points Plaza and Beamish Drive;
  • maintaining a temporary pedestrian access on the south side of Dundas; and
  • maintaining pedestrian access on the north side of Bloor West east of Resurrection Road.
