Emergency sewer repair on the Eastern Waterfront
means detours for TTC buses, October 19, 20, 21, 22



The City of Toronto is closing

  • Queens Quay East between Richardson and Lower Jarvis Streets

as crews make emergency repairs to the sewers, starting this evening and continuing until early Monday morning.

The TTC is detouring buses operating along the 6 Bay and 75 Sherbourne routes to accommodate the work.


6 Bay

From 8 p.m. tonight, Friday, October 19 until 5 a.m. Monday, October 22, southbound buses operate along their regular route to Queens Quay East and Freeland Street, then detour:

northward along Freeland;
eastward along Lake Shore Boulevard East; and then
southward along Lower Jarvis Street to just south of Lake Shore East,
ending their trips.

(In other words: the buses again operate their former route before the TTC extended service to George Brown College’s Waterfront Campus Wednesday, August 15.)
