College sidewalk improvements:
TTC detours start June 19



Update — Thursday, July 27, 5:18 p.m.: Construction Gerrard Street East ended early — 11 a.m. Wednesday, July 26. Streetcars operating along the 506 Carlton route have resumed regular service. Shuttle buses no longer operate along the east end of the route.


*Updated — Wednesday, July 5, 5:36 p.m.: TTC construction on Gerrard Street East west of Coxwell Avenue ends early Sunday, July 9. That same day, the TTC starts more streetcar infrastructure projects on Coxwell Avenue and on Gerrard East east of Coxwell.


Starting 5 a.m. Monday, June 19, the City of Toronto is reducing:

  • College Street between Havelock and Shaw Streets

to just one lane of traffic in each direction as during a project (.pdf) to rebuild the sidewalks and install “streetscaping”.

The TTC is detouring streetcars operating along these routes during the project:

  • 306 Carlton overnight; and
  • 506 Carlton.

Shuttle buses replace streetcars between Dundas Street West and Bathurst Street.

TTC detours actually start 3 a.m. Sunday, June 18, but due to the Taste of Little Italy, streetcars and buses follow a more complicated detour routing Sunday.

The TTC is also detouring streetcars in the east end of the route, also starting Monday, June 19. The detour affects streetcar service along Gerrard Street East between Coxwell Avenue and Parliament Street. Shuttle buses operate between those two streets.


Contractors start working on the south side of College at Rusholme Road and proceed eastward to Dovercourt Road. Streetscaping includes installing parkettes, trees, street lighting and bike rings.

Crews work from 7 a.m. until 11 p.m. Mondays to Fridays and, occasionally, after hours and weekends, to shorten the construction timeline and reduce disrupting the public.


Sidewalk and streetscaping construction on College Street and the TTC detours continue until 5 a.m. October 15.
