Temporary changes to TTC 511 Bathurst streetcar route
May 22, 2020
Starting Mon., May 25, the 511 Bathurst streetcar route, which has temporarily been replaced by buses, will be diverting due to construction. The rehabilitation work, which is being undertaken by the City of Toronto and the TTC, will require the Bathurst St. bridge to close to all vehicle and cyclist traffic. During construction, one sidewalk will be available for pedestrian access through the work zone; cyclists may dismount to also use the sidewalk. The 511 and 307 Bathurst routes will divert in both directions via Front St., Spadina Ave. and Fort York Blvd. until the end of 2020.
Construction projects include:
- Rehabilitation of the Bathurst St. bridge between Front St. and Fort York Blvd.
- Two streetcar track renewal projects on Bathurst St. - at the Bathurst Station streetcar loop and the track section between Dundas St. and Wolseley St.
- City watermain work between Front St. and Queen St.
No stops will be missed along the route so customers can still board and disembark at their preferred locations. Travel times may be longer than normal during the construction, depending on the flow of traffic through the area.Other diversions will be required periodically to accommodate the construction.
