Weston Road bridge overnight construction:
TTC detours, September 7 and 8



Metrolinx contractors continue to work on the project to widen the overpass carrying GO Transit and other trains across Weston Road just north of the former village of Weston. The work — part of the ongoing projects to expand GO’s Georgetown South rail corridor and to build the Union Pearson Express rail line — also involves lowering the Weston Road roadway.

This weekend, the City of Toronto is closing Weston Road at the bridge to accommodate work on the projects.

The TTC is detouring buses operating along the 59A Maple Leaf via Gary, 59B Maple Leaf via Church, 73C Royal York via Albion and 89 Weston routes, while the street is closed.
