West Transitway Detour – closure of Roosevelt Bridge

From OC Transpo

The Transitway is being detoured between Westboro and Lincoln Fields stations as the temporary Roosevelt Bridge, located at the north end of Roosevelt Avenue near the Dominion Station, has been temporarily closed for repairs. Buses that normally use this bridge are being detoured via Churchill Street, Richmond Road and Carling Avenue in order to continue to connect customers travelling west of Westboro Station with their destinations. Customers can expect that there will be significant delays to their trips, particularly during the rush hour periods this evening and on Friday.

Routes that are impacted include: 57, 61, 62, 63, 64, 66, 67, 73, 74, 75, 82, 87, 252, 256, 257, 258, 261, 262, 263, 264, 265, 267, 268, 270, 271, 272, 277, 278, 282, 283.

OC Transpo is working with Traffic Services and other City departments to prioritize transit

services. A number of measures are being implemented, including:

• Removing parking and stopping from Churchill, between Scott and Richmond, and

Richmond, between Churchill and Woodroffe

• No stopping at any time within 50m from the intersections at Churchill and Richmond and

Churchill and Woodroffe

• Adjusting signal timing where possible to assist bus movements at intersections
