Eglinton Crosstown LRT- Forest Hill:
TTC detour starts July 31



eglinton crosstown logo.pngMetrolinx contractors are working to build the future Eglinton - Crosstown light rail transit line.

Ongoing work near the intersection of Bathurst Street and Eglinton Avenue West — the site of the future Forest Hill Station continues to delay buses and all traffic.

Starting Sunday, July 31, the TTC is detouring buses operating along this route, to reduce delaying passengers:

  • 33 Forest Hill.

It’s revising the north-end loop so that buses proceed counterclockwise instead of clockwise. Passengers must cross the street from their regular stop to board the buses.

Construction near Forest Hill Station and the detour continue until further notice.
