Partial closure of intersection - St. Clair Avenue and Christie Street
The intersection of St. Clair Avenue and Christie Street will be partially closed, weather permitting, from Thursday, March 12 to Thursday, March 19 at 7 a.m. for TTC track reconstruction work.

One lane of traffic along St. Clair Avenue in both directions will remain open, allowing vehicles to travel through the intersection. However, traffic travelling on Christie St. in either direction will not be able to cross the intersection. The partial closure of the intersection will also temporarily prohibit left-hand turns in all directions.

TTC service will be impacted by this partial closure as follows:

126 Christie Bus Route:
• Southbound buses will be diverted from St. Clair West Station via: west on the streetcar right-of-way, south on Vaughan Road, south on Bathurst Street, west on Davenport Road, south on Christie Street and onto its route.

• Northbound buses will be maintained on regular routing. In the event that construction conditions make it unsafe for TTC bus drivers to negotiate the north to east right-turn at the Christie/St Clair intersection, northbound buses will be diverted via: north on Christie Street, east on Benson Avenue, north on Wychwood Avenue and east on St. Clair Avenue and onto its route.

512 St. Clair Route:
No changes to current service during this partial closure.
