Howard Park construction: TTC detour, starting August 5



Starting Sunday, July 30, the City of Toronto is closing

  • Howard Park Avenue between Roncesvalles Avenue and Dundas Street West

to accommodate contractors who are replacing the water main.

Starting Saturday, August 5, the TTC is detouring streetcars along this route, while the street is closed:

Construction on Howard Park Avenue and the resulting TTC detour continue until October 7.


Although construction blocks the street starting July 30, the TTC doesn’t start detouring the cars until August 4, due to “bridge work” further eastward along the route on Dundas Street West.

During this diversion, TTC crews complete other work in the area including:

  • overhead infrastructure work at High Park Loop; and
  • concrete repairs on Howard Park Avenue between Indian Grove and Indian Road.
