TIFF Road Closures

POSTED ON September 5, 2017 BY Justine Smith

Street Closures

At 5 a.m. on September 7, King Street will be closed to vehicles between University Avenue and Peter Street, and John Street will be closed between King Street and Wellington Street. 

During this period, only westbound traffic will be permitted on King Street between Peter Street and Spadina Avenue. Both streets will re-open at 5 a.m. on September 11.

Motorized traffic will not be able to cross the Festival Street closure on intersecting streets such as Widmer Street or Simcoe Street. The cycle tracks on Simcoe Street will remain open and unobstructed, and people with bicycles will be asked to walk across the King Street intersection for safety among the large number of pedestrians.

TTC Diversions

The 504 King streetcar will be diverted around the closure. Westbound streetcars from Broadview Station will divert north on York St., west on Queen St., then south on Spadina Ave. and back to King St. to continue the westbound journey.

Eastbound streetcars from Dundas West Station will divert north on Spadina Ave., east on Queen St., then south on Church St. and back to King to continue the eastbound journey.

Supplemental 504 King buses that normally operate during rush hours will divert using Richmond and Adelaide streets between Spadina and University.

The 514 Cherry streetcar will follow the same diversion route as the 504 King streetcar, outlined above.
