Starting tonight Monday, June 17 at 8 p.m., City of Toronto and TTC contractors working on the project to upgrade the street and install streetcar tracks on Leslie Street start blocking traffic lanes.

They’re working to build new tracks to connect the future Leslie Barns streetcar maintenance and storage facility to the tracks on Queen Street East.

Tonight, a construction team is installing “temporary traffic protection” — concrete barriers — and signs along Leslie Street in the northbound curb lane between Commissioners Street and Lake Shore Boulevard East. During this work, they’ll maintain one northbound lane for through traffic and one lane each for northbound right and left turns onto Lake Shore East.

This week, from Monday, June 17 until Friday, June 21, a construction team will work on underground wiring and other communication utilities at the intersection of Leslie and Commissioners Streets. This work requires them to occupy the centre northbound and southbound lanes on Leslie Street, from just south of Commissioners Street to a point about 40 meters further south. They’ll also install signs and lighting for the safety of pedestrians, cyclists and motorists.

TTC passengers riding buses operating along the 83 Jones route should expect delays.
