Wellington / Yonge track-replacement project: TTC revises detours, starting June 1



Since Monday, March 8, the City of Toronto and the TTC have started a multi-phase project to upgrade streetcar infrastructure and improve the streetscape

  • on Church Street between King and Wellington Streets East and
  • on Wellington Streets East and West between Church Street and west of Yonge Street.

According to the TTC, “This work is required to bring the track infrastructure and City’s pedestrian infrastructure to a state of good repair and is part of the 2021 [City of Toronto] Council-approved Capital Works Program. Update notices will be issued as work progresses.”

Since 6 a.m. Tuesday, May 25, the work zone has blocked part of

  • the intersection of Wellington Street with Yonge Street,

and the TTC has detoured buses around the intersection.

Starting, Monday, June 1, the work zone blocks even more of the intersection and the TTC further detours buses along these routes:

  • 72B Pape via Commissioners and Queens Quay;

  • 97B Yonge; and
