Northbound Keele Street Closure South of Finch Avenue West Extended to Early 2014

August 27, 2013

Update: Subway station excavation work necessitates the continued closure of northbound Keele Street approximately 100 metres south of Finch Avenue West until early 2014. TYSSE staff continue to work with its contractors and City staff to evaluate options to re-open northbound Keele Street in this area in a manner that meets both construction and public safety requirements.

Detour signs are posted to redirect through traffic to alternate routes. Motorists may face traffic delays.

Two-way access to all businesses will be maintained on Keele Street. Exception: traffic exiting the TD Bank and McDonalds must use the Finch Avenue West driveway.

Traffic Route Detour for Northbound Keele Street

The northbound detour route runs east on Toro Road, north on Tangiers Road to the Murray Ross Parkway extension back on to Keele Street northbound.

Right turns will not be permitted from westbound Finch Avenue West to northbound Keele Street, except for buses.

Trucks are not permitted on Broadoaks Drive or Catford Road.

Motorists please obey all signs and slow down through this construction zone.

TTC Bus Routes

Transit delays may be experienced on 36 Finch Avenue West, 107 Keele North and 41 Keele. Northbound bus routes that normally travel on Keele Street north of Toro Road will use the detour.

Pedestrian Access/Walkways

The multi-use pathway on the west side of Keele Street will remain open during construction. For pedestrians on the east side of Keele Street, please follow the designated pathway adjacent to the TD Bank. Please take extra care while walking near construction areas.
