Partial closure of intersection at University and Dundas starts Friday, continues through Monday
The intersection of University Avenue and Dundas Street will be partially closed from Friday, April 6 at 7 a.m. until Tuesday, April 10 at 5 a.m. for TTC track reconstruction work.

During the closure, one lane of westbound traffic along Dundas Street will remain open, allowing vehicles to travel through the intersection. No trucks will be permitted to travel through the intersection because the lane has been narrowed. Traffic travelling north or south on University Avenue or east along Dundas Street will not be able to travel through the intersection.

Traffic travelling north on University Avenue will be diverted at Queen Street while most southbound traffic on University Avenue will be diverted at Elm Street. Traffic travelling east on Dundas Street will be diverted at McCaul Street. In addition, Simcoe Street and Michael Sweet Avenue will be converted into two-way streets temporarily to maintain local access during the weekend construction.

During the closure, motorists are encouraged to use alternative east/west routes such as Queen Street or College Street and north/south routes including Yonge Street, Bay Street or Spadina Avenue.

Transit service changes are as follows:

505 Dundas Streetcars: Currently and until further notice, 505 Dundas streetcars are being diverted both ways via: Church Street, Carlton Street and College Street due to ongoing track work along Dundas Street. Customers on the Yonge-University-Spadina subway line can transfer to Dundas streetcars at College Station and at Queens Park Station.

142 Downtown/Avenue Rd Express Buses: As a result of the intersection work, on Monday, April 9, 142 Downtown/Avenue Road Express buses will be diverted around the Dundas/University intersection both ways via: University Avenue, Armoury Street, Chestnut Street and Edward Street to regular routing.
