Lake Shore West / Royal York construction:
TTC detour, August 11 to 14



City of Toronto and TTC contractors continue with the long-term project to rebuild the streetcar tracks on Lake Shore Boulevard West between Dwight Avenue and Humber Loop.

This weekend, from 7 a.m. Friday, August 11 until 6 a.m. Monday, August 14, crews work at the intersection of

  • Lake Shore Boulevard West with Royal York Road,

partially blocking traffic lanes.

The TTC is detouring buses operating along this route, while crews work in the intersection:

  • 76 Royal York South.

The TTC continues to replace streetcars with buses along the 301 Queen overnight and 501 Queen routes. These buses and buses operating along the 145 Downtown / Humber Bay express route continue to provide regular service during the construction.


Before 7 a.m. Friday, August 11, crews place traffic-control barrels on Lake Shore Boulevard West through the intersection to create a safe work zone. They’ll clear the work zone by 6 a.m. Monday, August 14.

During this phase of the track-reconstruction project, crews are:

  • breaking concrete;
  • digging up and removing the old track;
  • installing new rail; and
  • placing new concrete.

Crews work continuously, 24 hours a day. According to the TTC, working “around-the-clock” allows it to complete trackwork through the intersection on schedule and to re-open it to traffic as quickly as possible. Activities resulting in loud noise end by 11 p.m.

The work zone blocks traffic lanes. East- and westbound traffic proceeds through the intersection only along the curb lanes. South- and northbound motorists can only turn right at the intersection. The City is also restricting parking near the work zone.


76 Royal York South

From 7 a.m. Friday, August 11 until 6 a.m. Monday, August 14, southbound buses operate along their regular route to Royal York Road and Drummond Street, then detour:

westward along Drummond;
southward along Dwight Avenue; and then
eastward along Lake Shore Boulevard West to Royal York,
resuming their regular route eastward along Lake Shore West.

Southbound buses skip their regular stops

  • on Royal York Road at Vanevery Street, Hillside Avenue, Symons Street, across from Dartmouth Crescent and at Albani Street.

Southbound buses likely stop at temporary stops on Dwight Avenue during construction.

Northbound buses operate along their regular route.
