The Toronto Transit Commission will be conducting streetcar track and overhead wire work on Broadview Ave., between Broadview Station and Queen St.E. from July 20 to August 30. As a result, buses will replace streetcars on Broadview Ave. between Queen St.E. and Danforth Ave.

The TTC is committed to minimizing disruption to the community and is therefore taking advantage of the six-week period without streetcar operations to carry out the work. The overhead wire upgrade is necessary for the future operation of the TTC’s new accessible streetcars.

- 504 King streetcars will divert east on King St.E., north on Parliament St. and east on Dundas St.E. to Broadview Ave., then turn back south on Broadview Ave., west on Queen St.E., south on Parliament St. and west on King St.E.

- 505 Dundas streetcars will divert east on Dundas St.E., north on Parliament St., east on Gerrard St. to Broadview Ave., then turn back south on Broadview Ave. and west on Dundas St.E.
