Jarvis Street is a north-south thoroughfare in downtown Toronto, Ontario, Canada:

According to Wikipedia, a reversible lane is:

  • a lane in which traffic may travel in either direction, depending on certain conditions
  • meant to improve traffic flow during rush hours, by having overhead traffic lights and lighted street signs notify drivers which lanes are open or closed to driving or turning

The centre reversible lane on Jarvis Street, from Queen Street to Isabella Street, was activated on Saturday, November 17, 2012, at 9 a.m. and:

  • Once activated, the centre lane of the roadway will operate in a northbound direction from approximately 3:45 p.m. to 6:30 p.m. Monday to Friday
  • Will operate in a southbound direction at all other times
  • Use of the reversible lane will not  be permitted for approximately five minutes when the centre lane switches from the:
    • southbound to northbound direction (3:40 to 3:45 p.m.)

    • northbound to southbound direction (6:30 to 6:35 p.m.)

  • Lane directional signals (suspended over the reversible lane) will be used to indicate the direction of the lane:
    • A signal indication showing a red “X” will indicate that the use of the reversible lane is prohibited

    • While an indication of a green arrow (downward) will indicate that use of the reversible lane is permitted

The TTC’s 510 Spadina streetcars will resume operation along Spadina Avenue this Sunday, November 18, following major investment and renewal work:

  • The construction, which began in June, involved track reconstruction at several key locations, modification of the passenger platforms and shelters, and modernization of the overhead power system in preparation for the arrival of the TTC’s new low-floor streetcars.
    • Additional track work will be carried out next summer

  • The 510 Spadina streetcar service  will turn back at King St. until later this year
    • Replacement buses will operate between King St. and Queens Quay
