Queen St East bridge to close for construction

Motorists who use Queen St. E. can expect traffic snarls until summer as construction begins next week on the bridge over the Don Valley Parkway.

The bridge, between River St. and Broadview Ave., will be closed to drivers for 14 weeks and transit vehicles for 16 weeks starting April 1.

The 501, 301 and 502 streetcars that run along Queen and the 503 and 504 King streetcars will be rerouted north along Broadview Ave. to Dundas St. E., then south along Parliament St. to Queen and King Sts. during construction.

The project is scheduled to be completed by July 8.

A special TTC bus will service Queen St. E. between Parliament and River Sts.
