Work description and purpose

Due to Metrolinx Crosstown LRT construction, TTC must temporarily re-route buses. Starting on Monday, July 17 for approximately three weeks, Toronto Hydro on behalf of Metrolinx will be working on Duplex Avenue south of Eglinton Avenue, impacting regular operation of TTC buses entering and exiting Eglinton Station via Duplex Avenue.

To maintain the best possible transit service and efficiently move 70,000 daily customers, buses running along the Eglinton Avenue East corridor must be re-routed during Metrolinx’s utility work on Duplex Avenue.

The 34 Eglinton East, 54 Lawrence East, 51 Leslie and 56 Leaside bus routes will divert during Metrolinx’s work hours of 7 a.m. to 7 p.m. – see below for further details. Police and TTC personnel will be onsite to help provide safe transit and traffic operations.
