Bathurst / College construction:
TTC revising detour routings, June 27



Update — Tuesday, July 12, 6:02 a.m.: The City and TTC reopened the intersection of College and Bathurst at 6 a.m. Monday, July 11. The TTC continues to revise or detour services due to other construction projects on College Street.


Since Monday, June 20, the City of Toronto and the TTC have been replacing the streetcar tracks at the intersection of College and Bathurst. To accommodate this work, the City is completely closing the intersection until 6 a.m. Tuesday, July 12.

The City also removing the eastbound streetcar platform and rebuilding the westbound platform to meet the accessibility guidelines of the Accessibility for Ontarians with Disabilities Act or AODA. College Street is not wide enough to include platforms that appropriately serve TTC riders who use assistive devices. Crews will also adjust the corners and sidewalks to better serve the TTC’s new, low-floor Toronto Flexity streetcars. When work is complete, eastbound passengers will board streetcars from the sidewalk.

For this project, crews are:

  • removing the concrete and old streetcar track;
  • replacing the concrete;
  • installing new track;
  • rebuilding the westbound streetcar platform;
  • removing the eastbound nearside streetcar platform;
  • repairing sidewalks to improve accessibility;
  • restoring the road and sidewalks;
  • repairing concrete on the College Street track allowance between Lippincott and Borden Streets; and
  • abandoning old water-mains by cutting and capping the ends.

You can expect crews to work at times during this project 24 hours a day and seven days a week.

When crews are rebuilding the TTC tracks, they may work evenings and overnight. Overnight, the TTC crews are moving rails into position, installing the new rails and welding and grinding them. After-hours work supports daytime construction, the TTC says, and helps it finish the project as quickly as possible.

Expect noise when trucks back up or when crews are moving rail into place.

The City is prohibiting parking in the active work zone. If you’ve parked your vehicle so that it blocks construction work, the City will relocate it with no charge to you. Call parking control at 416-808-2222 to learn the location of your vehicle.

Since Monday, June 20, the TTC has been revising services or detouring streetcars and buses operating along various routes. With the end of another construction project at Bay and College Streets, the TTC is revising the detour routings, starting tomorrow, Monday, June 27. Detours continue for these routes:

  • 306 Carlton overnight;
  • 310 Bathurst overnight;
  • 506 Carlton; and
  • 511 Bathurst.
