John Street will be permanently closed to all traffic today, May 1. A pedestrian bridge will be built in fall.
The work is being done to “complete the Weston Tunnel through this area and to re-route and upgrade the water main currently crossing the rail corridor”, according to a spokesperson for Metrolinx. The bridge cannot be built until the tunnel is finished.
The 59 Maple Leaf bus, already re-routed, will be re-re-routed up King, which will be reopened.
