TTC closing Humber Loop to buses,
starting April 24



Since Monday, January 8, the TTC and the City of Toronto have been working on a project to:

  • renew the TTC tracks and overhead wiring on Lake Shore Boulevard West between Dwight Avenue (west of Royal York Road) and Humber Loop;
  • renew the TTC tracks and overhead wiring on The Queensway between Humber Loop and Parkside Drive;
  • rehabilitate The Queensway bridge over the Humber River; and
  • improve Humber Loop, including
  • installing new tracks, accessible streetcar platforms and new shelters;
  • rebuilding the tunnel walkway;
  • replacing the roof of the service building; and
  • building a new electrical substation.

Since then, the TTC has replace streetcars with buses along the 301 Queen overnight and 501 Queen routes west of Roncesvalles Avenue. It has also extended service along the 80 Queensway route to Keele Station at all times of the week, so that buses no longer operated through Humber Loop. However, buses operating along the 66A Prince Edward route have continued dropping off or picking up passengers in the loop.

Starting Monday, April 24, work in the loop has progressed to a state where the TTC must completely close the loop to all vehicles, so the TTC is now extending the path for buses along the 66 Prince Edward route.

Construction on Lake Shore Boulevard West, in Humber Loop and on The Queensway continues until December 31.
