Main / Danforth: TTC completing utility work, removing poles, starting March 24



Starting Wednesday, March 24, TTC crews are conducting utility work and removing old poles in the area of Main Street and Danforth Avenue. Crews mostly work at the northeast corner of the intersection. They’re removing four old TTC poles during the course of the project - three on the north side of Danforth and one on the south side of Danforth.

Crews are excavating a small trench on the roadway at the north-east corner of the intersection. They’ll also saw-cut and chip concrete to remove the old poles. They install equipment, materials and the traffic controls to mark the work zone and remove it all daily.

Starting “as early as” Wednesday, March 24 at 7 a.m., crews set up a safe work zone and temporary traffic controls. During working hours, the work zone restricts traffic lanes. Crews are maintaining one northbound lane on Main Street and one westbound lane on Danforth through the work zone

Crews are also maintaining the east-west pedestrian crosswalk on the north side of the intersection. While crews are removing poles, expect temporary sidewalk closures on Main Street.

Passengers aboard buses along these routes can expect delays:

  • 20 Cliffside;
  • 23 Dawes;
  • 113 Danforth;
  • 135 Gerrard;
  • 300 Bloor - Danforth overnight;
  • 304 Carlton overnight; and
  • 506 Carlton.

Crews work Mondays to Fridays from 7 a.m. until 7 p.m.

TTC pole removal at Main / Danforth and the resulting TTC service delays continue for “two weeks”, meaning as late as until April 10.
