Temporary streetcar diversions on section of Queen St. E. starting Monday

Starting this Mon., Apr. 22, streetcars operating along a section of Queen St. E. between Broadview Ave. and Parliament St. will divert while TTC crews replace a critical rail expansion joint on the Don Valley Bridge.


The essential maintenance work is part of ongoing efforts to ensure the safety and reliability of TTC streetcar infrastructure. The work will involve saw cutting, breaking of concrete to expose the existing rail, replacement of the expansion joint, and laying of new concrete.


Crews will be working around-the-clock until the work is complete, with streetcars expected to resume normal routing on Mon., Apr. 29.


Streetcar diversions


While the work is carried out, 501 Queen, 301 Queen Night, 503 Kingston Road, 504 King, and 504 King Night streetcars will divert both ways from Queen St. E., via Broadview Ave., Dundas St. E., and Parliament St.


Replacement buses


Queen streetcars will be replaced by buses along Queen St. E. between Carlaw Ave. and Sherbourne St., while King replacement buses will operate between Broadview Station and Sherbourne St, via Queen St. E. and King St. E.


Vehicle traffic across the Don Valley Bridge and access to the DVP on-ramp will be maintained during the work.


The TTC appreciates the patience and understanding of customers, motorists, and residents in the affected area during this necessary work. Customers are encouraged to plan ahead and allow for extra travel time during the diversion period.


The TTC is committed to keeping customers informed about work and events that impact service, as well as alternate route options. For the most up-to-date information, follow @TTCNotices on X or sign up for eAlerts.
