After more than ten years of planning, consulting, engineering and designing, the City of Toronto has started Phase 2 of a major construction project to redesign, rebuild and simplify the “Six Points” intersection in central Etobicoke — the complex junction where Bloor and Dundas Streets West meet Kipling Avenue.

(The City already completed some early work — Phase 1 — on the project from 2014 until 2016. During Phase 1, crews worked in the former Westwood cinema lands to prepare the site for new infrastructure — sewers, water-mains, other underground utilities and roadways — clearing trees and grading the land.)

During the project, the City intends to:

  • build a new road network and “at-grade” intersection at Dundas, Bloor and Kipling, with Bloor continuing across Kipling;
  • improve pedestrian facilities including wide boulevards, trees, and street furniture;
  • improve pedestrian access to Kipling Station;
  • improve cycling facilities with separate bike lanes on all major streets; and
  • make more land available for parkettes, public art, new development and other amenities.

Starting Monday, July 9, the TTC is detouring southbound buses operating along these routes, as crews rebuild the ramp to St. Albans Road on the east side of Kipling Avenue:

  • 44 Kipling South;
  • 188 Kipling South rocket.

  • 45 Kipling;
  • 45E Kipling express; and

This phase of construction on Kipling Avenue and the TTC detours continue until August 13.


During this stage of the project, the City has also:

  • opened some of the new streets in the former Westwood lands south of Dundas Street West and east of Kipling Avenue to vehicular traffic — but just one lane in each direction;
  • opened part of the new roadway for Dundas Street West east of Kipling Avenue to vehicular traffic — but just one lane in each direction;
  • closed the ramp from eastbound Dundas West to southbound Kipling and from southbound Kipling to eastbound Dundas West.

Crews continue:

  • since May, building the new southern portion of Dundas West, west of Kipling, installing street lighting, separate underground sewer, water and hydro utilities. (The work restricts traffic on Dundas West to just one lane in each direction. It continues until December 31.);
  • building the new St. Albans Road to Kipling Avenue, including grading, streetscaping (landscaping, street lighting and underground cables), roads and curbs. (This work continues until September 30.);
  • building temporary and then permanent intersection improvements and traffic signal systems at Kipling and Dundas West. (This work restricts traffic on Kipling to just one lane in each direction. It continues until December 31.);
  • installing temporary asphalt, new water-mains, storm sewers, sanitary sewers, and streetscaping (including landscaping, street lighting and underground utilities) on the south side of Bloor Street West. (This work restricts traffic to just one lane in each direction from the west side of Dunbloor Road to the Canadian Pacific Railway line. It continues until December 31.); and
  • widening Dunbloor Road along the western edge and building various roadway and boulevard improvements. removing shurbs, installing newstreet lighting and repaving. (This work continues until September 30.)
