Dundas and Parliament will be closed for three weeks starting Monday

May 10 2017, 4:26 pm

Brace yourselves, Toronto, another road closure is coming.

The intersection at Dundas and Parliament will be closed from May 15 to June 5 for TTC track replacement work as well as road and sidewalk repairs.

And once the intersection does open, from June 6 to 10, one lane of traffic in each direction will be open to allow traffic to travel through the intersection while the last part of the work is being completed.

According to the City of Toronto, when the full closure is in place, all eastbound traffic on Dundas Street will be detoured at Sherbourne Street while all westbound traffic on Dundas approaching the intersection will be detoured at River Street.

As for southbound traffic on Parliament Street, that will be detoured at Gerrard Street. All northbound traffic on Parliament approaching the intersection will be detoured at Shuter Street.

Gerrard Street and Queen Street are alternative routes for eastbound and westbound traffic. River Street and Sherbourne Street are alternatives for northbound and southbound traffic.

The City says that road users should expect delays and increased traffic on nearby roads. And with the road closures, there will be TTC detours.

Several changes to TTC service will take place as a result of this work:

• 65 Parliament buses will divert around the closed intersection both ways via Shuter Street, Sherbourne Street and Gerrard Street.

• 505 Dundas streetcars will divert both ways (from Broadview/Gerrard) via Gerrard Street, Parliament Street, Carlton Street/College Street and Bay Street (to Bay/Dundas) to regular routing. This diversion also takes into account City watermain work currently underway on Dundas Street East between Yonge and Church.

• 505 Dundas shuttle buses will provide service on Dundas Street, Shuter Street and Broadview Avenue, between Bay and Dundas Streets and Broadview Station.

With all the road work one thing is for sure, it’s almost summer.
