Lane reductions at Bay/College intersection for median removal
Traffic will be reduced to one lane in all directions at the intersection of College Street and Bay Street from Monday, June 20 to Sunday, June, 26 for the removal of the streetcar medians.

The medians are being removed to meet accessibility guidelines set out by the Accessibility for Ontarians with Disabilities Act (AODA). Crews will also adjust the corners and sidewalks to better serve the new, low-floor TTC streetcars.

Work will mainly occur between 7 a.m. and 7 p.m. on weekdays with some work taking place after hours and on the weekend as necessary. The majority of the work will be completed by June 26 and lanes will reopen, however crews will return for one day on Monday, July 11 to lay new asphalt and paint the permanent pavement markings.

The City is taking steps to minimize disruption to the public during this closure by enhancing signage in the area.
