Steeles construction at Metrolinx rail crossing: Road closure, TTC detours, October 16 to 19



Metrolinx continues a project to upgrade GO Transit’s Stouffville line tracks as part of the GO Expansion program.

Metrolinx is also working with the City of Toronto and Region of York to build an underpass on Steeles Avenue East to separate the train tracks from traffic, so that trains and vehicles can move through the area more easily.


Starting 8 p.m. Friday, October 16, the City is closing

  • Steeles Avenue East between Old Kennedy Road / Silver Star Boulevard and Redlea Avenue,

as contractors upgrade Milliken GO Station, including installing a new temporary platform and infrastructure to switch main-line service from one track to another.

The TTC is detouring buses along these routes, while the streets are closed:

  • 43 Kennedy;
  • 53 Steeles East;
  • 343 Kennedy overnight; and
  • 353 Steeles overnight.
