  • Oakwood Avenue at Eglinton Avenue

during early phases of Metrolinx construction of the future Oakwood station on the Eglinton Crosstown light rail transit line.

The construction project significantly changes the lane configuration at the intersection of Eglinton Avenue West and Oakwood Avenue.

The TTC is detouring buses operating along the 63 Ossington and 316 Ossington overnight routes, while the work restricts traffic through the intersection.

Construction starts Monday, August 19 and continues until December, when all lanes reopen and buses resume their regular routing.

During the construction, the buses do not operate to and from Eglinton West Station. Passengers traveling to and from the subway must ride on buses operating along the 32 Eglinton West or 307 Eglinton West overnight routes to connect with buses operating along the 63 Ossington or 316 Ossington overnight routes at Oakwood Avenue.
