What we are doing and why

TTC will be rebuilding an existing underground utility chamber on the east side of Lansdowne Avenue, just south of Bloor Street. The chamber is part of a network in the city that provides access to electrical and communication cabling for TTC, as well as for other utility companies.


Activities will include sidewalk excavation to expose the utility chamber, rebuilding the concrete chamber and restoring the sidewalk. Some equipment and materials will remain onsite overnight.

Street furniture, such as the transit shelter, TTC stop pole and garbage receptacle will be temporarily removed/relocated until this work is complete.

Work Zone

Beginning on June 1 at 7 a.m., crews will begin setting up a safe work zone and pedestrian detour.

Traffic and pedestrian details

  • Traffic will be maintained in each direction for the duration of the project.
  • A northbound curb lane reduction through the work zone is required for safety and a pedestrian detour.
  • A protected pedestrian detour on the east side of Lansdowne Avenue will be provided.
  • All pedestrian crosswalks, private driveways and store entrances will be maintained.
  • The work zone will remain in place until the completion of the project.

Work hours and timeline

Work will take place Monday to Friday between 7 a.m. and 7 p.m. Efforts will be made to complete the work sooner by working Saturdays between 9 a.m. and 5 p.m., as required.

TTC service

The bus stop for the 47 Lansdowne northbound bus will be temporarily relocated and reinstated after the work has been completed.

Thank you for your patience during this essential work.
