22 Coxwell / 322 Coxwell
A City bridge rehabilitation project is scheduled to commence April 2019 on Coxwell Avenue, south of Danforth Avenue. Northbound lanes along Coxwell Avenue between Upper Gerrard Street East and Hanson Street will be closed for approximately 18 weeks. Northbound service will be diverted east on Gerrard Street East, north on Woodbine Ave and west onto Danforth Avenue to Coxwell Station. Southbound routing will not change and customers should expect longer than normal travel times.
Northbound customers travelling to Line 2 can access Woodbine Station from a temporary stop on Danforth Avenue, west of Woodbine Avenue.
29 Dufferin / 929 Dufferin Express
The 29 Dufferin and 929 Dufferin Express buses will be temporarily re-routed to terminate at Princes’ Gate Loop, via Exhibition Place. Buses will not enter Dufferin Gate Loop and will serve stops on Dufferin at Springhurst in both directions. 929 Dufferin Express buses will operate express from Springhurst Avenue to Princes’ Gate.
In addition, 929 Dufferin Express buses will serve both the nearside and farside stops at Eglinton Avenue due to pedestrian restrictions at the intersection resulting from Metrolinx Line 5 Eglinton construction.
There will be no change in the routing for the 329 Dufferin.
