Construction season is in full swing and the city says things are about to get more difficult for drivers.
The intersection of College Street and Bathurst Street will be fully closed in all directions from June 20 to July 12 for TTC track replacement work, road and sidewalk repairs.
All eastbound traffic on College Street approaching Bathurst Street will be detoured to Dufferin Street. Westbound traffic on College Street approaching Bathurst Street will be detoured to University Avenue or Spadina Avenue.
All southbound traffic on Bathurst Street approaching College Street will be detoured to Bloor Street. Northbound traffic on Bathurst Street approaching College Street will be detoured to Dundas Street West.
Signs for cyclists will be posted to assist cyclists travelling in the area of the construction work. Eastbound cyclists can take either Euclid Avenue or Palmerston Avenue north to Ulster Street and south on Lippincott Street. Barrels will be in place to guide cyclists to the south side of College Street. Westbound cyclists should take Borden Street to Ulster Street and travel south on Markham Street to return to College Street.
A safety barricade will be placed around the intersection to provide a barrier between construction work and pedestrians. Pedestrian access to businesses and walkways will be maintained at all times during the work.
Construction hours for this project have been extended to include overnight work in order to reduce the length of time required to complete the work. In addition, traffic-signal timing will be adjusted on parallel routes to minimize the disruption of traffic in the area.
The City has a web-based map to help residents and visitors make their travel plans, available at toronto.ca/roadrestrictions. Information about the City’s planned capital construction work is available at toronto.ca/inview.
