Main Street track repairs, January 30 to February 1



TTC crews are making “essential concrete and rail repairs” in the streetcar track allowance in front of Main Street Station this Saturday, January 30 and Sunday, January 31. Other crews are repairing concrete near the tracks on Coxwell Avenue this weekend.

By repairing the tracks at both locations the TTC will return the track area to a state of good repair.

In front of Main Street Station, crews are:

  • digging to expose the worn rail;
  • installing the new rail;
  • welding and grinding the new rail; and
  • placing concrete.

The work requires the TTC to adjust service along these routes:

  • 306 Carlton overnight; and
  • 506 Carlton.

Shuttle buses replace the cars between Main Street Station and Queen / Coxwell Loop.

The new concrete cures until 5 a.m. Monday, February 1, when traffic can again travel over the track area.

The curb lanes will be available to motorists while work proceeds. The City of Toronto will temporarily restrict parking in the area to create a safe work zone and maintain through traffic in both directions.

Crews typically work from 8 a.m. until 10 p.m.
