Dufferin Street and Springhurst Avenue intersection, Springhurst Avenue (Dufferin Street to Fort Rouille Street) Fort Rouille Street, and Dufferin Gate Loop Curves
On September 11, 2023, the City of Toronto and the Toronto Transit Commission (TTC) began working on the following infrastructure upgrades in the area of Dufferin Street and Springhurst Avenue:
To date, both the water main replacement and streetcar track renewal work has been completed.
The City’s contractor is currently completing final repaving and pavement marking work. This will be followed by overhead and the streetcar commissioning, which is expected to be completed by late November.
Construction is taking place in two phases, from September to December 2023.
Please note that excavation activity and heavy breaking (concrete and rail) will be carried out at various times throughout the day. The majority of excavation work will take place between 7 a.m. and 10 p.m. Around-the-clock (24/7) work during new rail installation by TTC crews is required to preserve the integrity and quality of new rail and concrete. Additional overnight rail work by TTC crews may consist of moving the new rail into position for installation.
During phase two, the intersection at Dufferin Street and Springhurst Avenue will close to traffic there will be a full intersection closure at Springhurst Avenue and Dufferin Street.
On-street parking is not permitted within the work zones. The City of Toronto has made alternate parking arrangements with affected residents.
