TTC crews are removing concrete that has lifted along a nine-metre (27-foot) section of track. The raised concrete prevents streetcars from using this section of Church Street.

Starting at about 7 a.m. Saturday, February 21, a crew will begin breaking and removing the concrete in the track area. They’ll complete this part of work by late afternoon, weather permitting.

Once they’ve excavated this track section, they’ll start placing concrete placement by about 10 p.m. The newly placed concrete will cure until 5 a.m. Monday, February 23 before traffic is allowed to travel over the track area.

Southbound traffic on Church may only turn left or right at the intersection. The work restricts northbound traffic to just the curb lane. Northbound motorists can’t turn left from Church onto Carlton. The work also restricts west- and eastbound traffic on Carlton to just one lane through the work zone. Motorists can’t turn left or right at the intersection.
