Since Thursday, March 1, construction for the ongoing project to extend the 1 Yonge - University - Spadina subway northwest from Downsview Station to York University and Vaughan has blocked all northbound traffic from Keele Street north of Finch Avenue West. During this phase of the work, City of Toronto and TTC contractors are relocating a watermain.

The TTC and City have now confirmed that work continues until Saturday, May 12.

For this phase of the project, the City has closed:

  • northbound lanes of Keele Street just north of Finch Avenue West and
  • westbound lanes of the York University busway just east of Keele Street.

While the work proceeds, the TTC is detouring buses operating along the 41 Keele, 107 Keele North and 196 York University rocket routes while the work proceeds. York Region Transit is detouring Viva buses operating along the Viva orange route.
