September 3, 2019 into November 2019 from Carlton to Bloor

City of Toronto Media Relations has issued the following news release:  August 30, 2019

Road work to reduce available lanes on a section of Sherbourne Street for two months 

Sherbourne Street will be reduced to one lane in each direction between Carlton Street and Bloor Street East during road construction scheduled from September 3 until into November. This work will involve resurfacing the road and repairing sections of damaged curb and sidewalk to achieve a state of good repair.

During construction, the cycle track on Sherbourne Street will be unavailable. Signs will advise cyclists and motorists to share the single northbound and southbound lanes. There will be no parking on Sherbourne Street between Carlton Street and Bloor Street East.

Work on this project will take place from Monday to Friday between 7 a.m. and 11 p.m., with some work after hours and on the weekend as needed for paving operations. 

The 75 Sherbourne bus route travel times and stop locations will be affected by the renewal project. More information will be available at

Local businesses in this area will be open as usual during the construction.

This work is part of the planned $1 billion construction to renew Toronto's aging roads, bridges, expressways, sewers and watermains. During the construction season, people are encouraged to plan their travel in advance and consider taking alternative routes or using public transit, obey signage around work zones for the safety of the work crews and be patient while driving.
