Broadview Avenue streetcar-track renewal: Construction starts July 4; TTC detours continue



Starting Tuesday, July 4, the City of Toronto is closing

  • Broadview Avenue between Danforth Avenue and Gerrard Street East

to accommodate a City / TTC project to renew the aging streetcar tracks.

Renewing the streetcar tracks helps reduce track noise and brings the track infrastructure to a state of good repair. During the project, the City is also rebuilding Montcrest Boulevard, resurfacing the Broadview Avenue roadway and repairing sidewalks and curbs.

The City and TTC work on the project in several phases:

  • Phase 1 - July 4 until early August
  • replacing the tracks between Sparkhall Avenue and Gerrard Street East; and
  • rebuilding Montcrest Boulevard.

During phase 1, the work zone restricts traffic to just one northbound lane only between Gerrard East and Danforth. A southbound traffic lane from Danforth to Montcrest will continue to be available for local access to businesses and residences until mid-July.

The TTC will also be renewing the streetcar tracks on Broadview Avenue between Erindale and Danforth avenues and in Broadview Station terminal in late August and September.

Since Sunday, June 18, the TTC has detoured buses and streetcars or revised service along these routes to accommodate this project and the upcoming construction in Broadview Station terminal:

  • 8 Broadview;
  • 62 Mortimer;
  • 70 O’Connor;
  • 72 Pape;
  • 87 Cosburn;
  • 100 Flemingdon Park;
  • 121 Esplanade - River;
  • 304 King overnight;
  • 306 Carlton overnight;
  • 322 Coxwell overnight;
  • 501B Queen shuttle buses;
  • 503 Kingston Rd;
  • 504 King;
  • 505 Dundas;
  • 506 Carlton; and
  • 506C Carlton shuttle buses.

Starting Tuesday, July 4, the TTC further revised some of the detour routings.

The TTC recently completed two early phases of this project:


This year, the City of Toronto and the TTC have started a series of major construction projects that significantly impact transit services in the east end of the former Toronto city — between Victoria Park Avenue and the Don River.

The various projects include:

See local transit commentator Steve Munro’s recent posts for details on how all these projects together disrupt transit in the east end:

  • “Construction on Broadview, Gerrard/Coxwell, Main Station and Queen East”, here;
  • “Construction on Broadview, Gerrard/Coxwell, Main Station and Queen East (June 2023 Update)”, here;
  • “Broadview Station Loop Expansion Deferred”, here;
  • “Broadview Construction Update”, here;
  • “Broadview Construction Part II”, here;
  • “Yet Another Change to East-End Streetcar Services”, here.

8 Broadview

The TTC is interlining at Broadview Station terminal buses along the route with buses along the 62 Mortimer route. It’s also extending the path so that buses operate to and from Warden Station bus terminal, temporarily replacing service along the 70C branch of the 70 O’Connor route.

Starting Sunday, June 18, westbound buses start their trips in Warden Station bus terminal, then proceed:

northward along Warden Avenue;
westward along St. Clair Avenue East;
southwest- and westward along O’Connor Drive to Lankin Boulevard,
resuming their regular path westward along O’Connor.

Westbound buses skip their regular stops

  • on Plains Road beyond Coxwell Avenue and
  • on Lankin Boulevard at O’Connor Drive.

The TTC is temporarily cancelling service to these stops.

Instead, westbound buses drop off or pick up passengers at new stops (for this route)

  • in Warden Station bus terminal,
  • on St. Clair Avenue East beyond Warden Avenue, across from Herron and Presley avenues, beyond Pharmacy Avenue, across from Maybourne Avenue, beyond Victoria Park Avenue, at Glenburn Avenue, across from Plaxton Drive and at Selwyn Avenue, Hodder Street, Westview Boulevard and O’Connor Drive and
  • on O’Connor Drive beyond Glenwood Crescent, across from Woodbine Avenue, at Woodvale Crescent and Taylor Drive, across from Binswood and Hutton avenues and at Coxwell Boulevard.

Back to top

Eastbound buses operate along their regular path to O’Connor Drive and Coxwell Boulevard / Coxwell Avenue, then detour:

east- and northeastward along O’Connor;
eastward along St. Clair Avenue East; and then
southward into Warden Station bus terminal,
ending their trips.

Eastbound buses skip their regular stops:

  • on Coxwell Avenue beyond O’Connor Drive and
  • on Plains Road beyond Coxwell Avenue.

TTC buses along the 70 O’Connor route continue to serve passengers at the stop on Coxwell. The TTC is temporarily cancelling all service to the stop on Plains.

Instead eastbound buses drop off or pick up passengers at new stops (for this route)

  • on O’Connor Drive at Hutton Avenue, beyond Binswood and Glebemount avenues, at Woodmount and Woodbine avenues and at Glenwood Crescent,
  • on St. Clair Avenue East beyond O’Connor Drive, at St. Columba Place, Rexleigh Drive, Glen Eden Crescent, Plaxton Drive and Squires and Glenburn avenues, beyond Victoria Park, Westburne and Pharmacy avenues, at Presley Avenue, beyond Herron Avenue and at Warden Avenue and
  • in Warden Station bus terminal.

The TTC is increasing the frequency of service along the route since the buses temporarily replace the regular service that buses along the 70C O’Connor and 100 Flemingdon Park routes usually provide.

501B Queen shuttle buses

The TTC has revised the path for streetcars along the 501 Queen route to accommodate long-term construction by Metrolinx contractors for the future Ontario Line subway.

Starting Monday, May 1, it introduced this new shuttle-bus route to partially replace streetcar service along the route between McCaul Street and Broadview Avenue. Starting Sunday, June 17, it revises the path for the shuttle buses to accommodate the Broadview Avenue construction “to reduce [passenger] confusion and improve service.”

Westbound buses operate along their regular path to River Street and Dundas Street East, then proceed:

eastward along Dundas East;
southward along Broadview Avenue; and then
westward along Queen Street East to River,
resuming their regular path westward along Queen East.

Westbound buses skip their regular stops

  • on River Street beyond Dundas Street East and at Queen Street East.

  • on Dundas Street West at Munro Street and Broadview Avenue,
  • on Broadview Avenue at Queen Street East and
  • on Queen Street East at Carroll and River streets.

Eastbound buses continue to operate along their regular path.


Transit agencies often interline buses along two or more routes with a common terminal to save resources — human resources (drivers) and physical resources (buses). For example, when a westbound bus along the 8 Broadview route arrives in Broadview Station terminal, it continues eastbound along the 62 Mortimer route. It completes a round trip along route 62 before returning to the terminal and then proceeding northward along route 8.
