Works and Emergency Services - The City of Toronto and Toronto Transit
Commission will replace streetcar tracks and reconstruct the road and sidewalks
at the intersection of Parliament and Gerrard Streets, and on Parliament Street

The work will be done in two stages:

  • Work will take place at the intersection of Parliament Street and
    Gerrard Street from Thursday, October 31 to Tuesday, November 5. The
    intersection will be closed during this time and traffic will be re-routed.

  • Northbound Parliament Street, from Dundas Street to Gerrard Street, will
    be closed from Tuesday, November 5 to Friday,
    November 8.

    After November 8, a minimum of one lane of traffic in each direction will be
    maintained at the intersection of Parliament Street and Gerrard Street East.

    Regular service of the Carleton 506 streetcar route and the Parliament 65 bus
    route will be suspended during the construction project. Shuttle buses will be
    provided for the 506 route between Logan Avenue and the College Street subway
    stop. Regular service will resume on Thursday, November 7. Up-to-date service
    details are available by calling the TTC information line at 416-393-4636 or by
