After more than ten years of planning, consulting, engineering and designing, the City of Toronto has started Phase 2 of a major construction project to redesign, rebuild and simplify the “Six Points” intersection in central Etobicoke — the complex junction where Bloor and Dundas Streets West meet Kipling Avenue.

(The City already completed some early work — Phase 1 — on the project from 2014 until 2016. During Phase 1, crews worked in the former Westwood cinema lands to prepare the site for new infrastructure — sewers, water-mains, other underground utilities and roadways — clearing trees and grading the land.)

During the project, the City intends to:

  • build a new road network and “at-grade” intersection at Dundas, Bloor and Kipling, with Bloor continuing across Kipling;
  • improve pedestrian facilities including wide boulevards, trees, and street furniture;
  • improve pedestrian access to Kipling Station;
  • improve cycling facilities with separate bike lanes on all major streets; and
  • make more land available for parkettes, public art, new development and other amenities.

Starting Monday, January 8, the TTC is detouring northbound buses operating along these routes, during construction on the east side of Kipling Avenue:

  • 45 Kipling local;
  • 45E Kipling express; and
  • 46 Martin Grove.

(Updated — Friday, June 26, 11:56 a.m.) (Updated — Wednesday, July 11, 9:33 a.m.) This phase of construction on Kipling Avenue and the TTC detours continue until June 30 further notice August 13.

(The construction may also affect service along the 300 Bloor - Danforth overnight route, but the TTC has not announced detours.)


During this stage of the project, crews are

  • installing new water-mains and storm-water and sanitary sewers,
  • installing streetscaping (including landscaping, street lighting and underground utilities)
  • installing new curbs;
  • building an underground hydro duct bank under Dundas West between Aukland Road and Jopling Avenue and;
  • restoring the roadway.

Six Points - Jan-8 - 2018 - overview.jpg

Specifically, crews are:

  • A - continuing to build the new Dundas Street West alignment — including installing new watermains, storm-water sewers, sanitary sewers, curbs and streetscaping and surfacing the roads through the former Westwood cinema lands. (Ongoing)
  • B - since December, installing temporary asphalt and new water-mains, storm-water and sanitary sewers, and streetscaping (including landscaping, street lighting and underground utilities) on the south side of Bloor Street West from Dunbloor Road to east of Resurrection Road. (This work started in December and continues until June 30.)
  • C - starting January 8, installing new water-mains and storm-water sewers across Kipling Avenue. The City is maintaining one lane of traffic in each direction. In the spring it will shift all traffic lanes to the east side of the roadway. The City is permanently closing the ramp from St. Albans Road to Bloor Street East. By closing the ramp, the City is also restricting motorist access from northbound Kipling to eastbound Bloor. It’s also removing the permanent access to the TTC parking lot on the east side of Kipling. It’s installing a temporary access road to the lot, but some parking spaces are temporarily unavailable. (This work continues until June 30.)
  • D - starting February, installing underground hydro cables under Dundas Street West between Aukland Road and Jopling Avenue. The City is maintaining at least two lanes of traffic in each direction through the work zone and the left-turning lanes at Aukland Road. (This work continue until April 30.)
