ALRV #4223 operating on the 501 Queen.

The TTC has announced that it plans to do track work at the intersection of Queen Street East and Victoria Street from May 12th, 2014 to the end of the month.

The TTC will be replacing the track at Queen St. and Victoria St.

During this time, the 501 Queen will be re-routed and the 502 Downtowner will be replaced by bus.

The 501 re-routing will be as follows:

  • Eastbound cars will head south  Spadina Ave. to King, then turn left onto King and head east to Church St.  At Church st. they will turn left and head north back to Queen St. where they will make a right turn and continue their normal eastbound route.
  • Westbound cars will do the same trip but in reverse: turning left onto Church st. heading south on Church to King Street.  A right turn will then lead them west along King St. to Spadina Ave. where they will turn right and head back up to Queen St.  Another left turn will see the cars heading west along Queen back on their normal routing.

The 502 bus replacement, as well as a replacement bus for the 501 in the construction area, will operate as follows: South on Church St. to Richmond St., west on Richmond St. to Simcoe St.  The buses will then turn left and head south on Simcoe St. to Adelaide Street and make another left. Buses will then return east on Adelaide St. to Jarvis St. before turn left and heading north on Jarvis Street to Queen St.  Buese will then turn right and head east along Queen St.

Passengers riding the 501 Queen will be able to transfer to the subway at St. Andrew (University Line) and King St. (Yonge Line.)  If passengers want to transfer to the bus, passengers can do so east of Jarvis St.
