Bloor East / Wilson South Oshawa construction: DRT detour, starting February 23



Region of Durham contractors are getting ready for a major construction project

  • at the intersection of Bloor Street East with Wilson Road South

in the City of Oshawa.

Early construction work near the intersection prevents buses from turning from Wilson South north of Bloor onto Bloor East east of Wilson.

Starting 7 a.m. Tuesday, February 23, Durham Region Transit is detouring buses along this route during this preliminary phase of the construction:

This phase of construction at Bloor East / Wilson South and the resulting DRT detour continues until February 28 (11:59 p.m.).


Starting 7 a.m. Monday, March 1, the Region of Durham is closing

  • the intersection of Bloor Street West [Regional Road 16] with Wilson Road South [Regional Road 35]

to all traffic, as contractors resume a project to install a new a new feeder main and replace local water-main and sanitary-sewer systems under Bloor East between Wilson and Ritson Roads East. The closure likely requires more extensive detours for DRT buses, but the transit agency has not yet announced diversions.


During earlier phases of the water-main and sewer projects, DRT has also detoured buses off Bloor Streets East and West:
