King Street West track repairs:
TTC overnight detours, June 11 to 15



From Tuesday, June 11 until Friday, June 14, TTC track crews are repairing streetcars tracks on at three sites on King Street West near:

  • Joe Shuster Way (east of Dufferin Street);
  • Tecumseth Street (west of Bathurst Street); and
  • Brant Street (west of Spadina Avenue).

The crews only work in the track area to:

  • break and remove concrete to expose the rail;
  • replace “old” rail with new rail; and
  • place new concrete.

Streetcars operate along King Street West through the multiple work zones during the daytime, but divert overnight nightly from 11 p.m. until 5 a.m., affecting service along these routes:

Shuttle buses replace the cars, operating between Sunnyside Loop and University Avenue.

The TTC says, “Rail work of this nature is required ‘around-the-clock’ to ensure quality installation of new rail and concrete. While the majority of the excavation will be done between 9:30 a.m. and 10 p.m., overnight activity will occur including welding and grinding.’

Tuesday, June 11 shortly after morning rush hour, the track crew will starts setting up the work zones. After 9:30 a.m., they’ll start excavating and chipping concrete chipping to expose the old rail. They’ll continue with these activities the next morning, Wednesday, June 12. Later, they’ll replace the old rail with new rail, requiring cutting, welding and grinding overnight.

Then, they’ll place concrete in the track area and set it to cure. The new concrete requires curing time before the crews can remove the work zones so that all road users can travel across the track area after 5 a.m. Saturday, June 15.

The work zones restrict traffic to just one lane in each direction. The City of Toronto will restrict on-street parking and may prohibit turns near the work zones.
