Don River bridge construction disrupts streetcar service,
August 10 to 20



Update — August 17: Streetcar service across the bridge does not resume until 5 a.m. on Thursday, August 20.


Next week, the TTC is repairing the streetcar tracks along the bridge carrying Queen Street East across the Don River.

During the construction, the TTC can operate buses across the bridge but must detour streetcars. The TTC is also operating shuttle buses to replace the regular streetcar service.


The construction affects these routes: 301 Queen overnight; 301 Queen overnight shuttle bus; 303 Don Mills overnight; 501 Queen; 501 / 504 Queen / King shuttle bus; 502 Downtowner; 503 Kingston Rd overnight; 504 King.
