Leslie Street upgrades and track installation:
Overnight construction, August 26 - 27



Update: Monday, August 26, 4:29 p.m.: Due to ‘unforeseen circumstances’ — probably the heavy rain that fell earlier today — the project managers have canceled tonight’s work.

City of Toronto and TTC contractors continue working to upgrade the street and install streetcar tracks on Leslie Street next week.

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

Overnight from 10 p.m. Monday, August 26 until 5 a.m. Tuesday, August 27, the project contractor will install two utility monitoring points at the centre of the intersection of Lake Shore Boulevard East and Leslie Street.

A “paid-duty” Toronto Police Services officer will be on the site to direct traffic and make sure pedestrians and cyclists can cross safely. Left-turning drivers should proceed with caution through the intersection.

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