121 River-Esplanade service change
- The 121 River-Esplanade will not operate on Jack Layton Way due to turn restrictions on Broadview Avenue north of Gerrard Street East during construction. Eastbound 121 River-Esplanade buses will divert via Dundas Street East, Broadview Avenue and Gerrard Street East to the Gerrard and St Matthews intersection. Westbound 121 River-Esplanade buses will depart from St Matthews and continue along Gerrard Street East to resume regular routing.

Please review the June 12, 2023 presentation of service plans during major infrastructure construction in the east end of Toronto:
What work is being done at Broadview Station and why?
The streetcar tracks on Broadview Avenue from Danforth Avenue to Gerrard Street East will be renewed from July 4 through the Fall.
The streetcar track infrastructure at Broadview Station including Broadview Avenue and Erindale Avenue in front of the station, will also be renewed.
The purpose for this construction is to bring the aging track to a state of good repair. These improvements will help us continue to run service for the years to come.
Why can the 504/304 King and 505 Dundas replacement buses not continue to run service?
The 504/304 King and 505 Dundas replacement bus service cannot continue to operate on Broadview Avenue once the construction starts, because only one northbound lane will be open and it will be too narrow along the construction zone for buses to travel through safely.
How does this construction work effect Wheel-Trans service?
Wheel-Trans service out of Broadview Station will remain unchanged.
What type of noise will we hear during the construction?
During all track related construction, there will be temporary noise, dust and vibration.
Work will take place 24 hours, 7 days a week. Excavation activities and heavy breaking will be carried out at various times throughout the day. All concrete breaking activities will occur between 7 a.m. and 11 p.m. Concrete breaking work is the most disruptive and will typically last the first 1-2 days for each phase of the construction.
Around-the-clock work during rail installation by TTC is required to preserve the integrity and quality of new rail and concrete. Overnight rail work by TTC may consist of moving new rail into position, rail installation and rail welding / grinding.
