City of Toronto and TTC contractors continue the project to upgrade the street, improve the water-service infrastructure and install streetcar tracks on Leslie Street.

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


Crews are painting permanent lane markings on Leslie Street between Queen Street East and Commissioners Street, Tuesday October 13 after 7 p.m. They’ll maintain at least one lane of traffic in each direction at all times during this work. A flag person will help control traffic.


Crews are also adjusting the Martin Goodman Trail at the northeast corner of Leslie and Lake Shore Boulevard East Tuesday, October 13. Cyclists and pedestrians can travel east / west. Due to the extent of the work zone, they’ll block the north / south crosswalk on the east side of the intersection. Cyclists and pedestrians looking may use the west crosswalk.


Also Tuesday, October 13, crews are installing a new duct at the northeast and southwest corners of Leslie Street and Queen Street East. They’ll work on one corner at a time, starting with the northeast corner, and temporarily remove part of the sidewalk.

Overnight from 11:59 Wednesday, October 14 until 4 a.m., Thursday, October 15, TTC crews are working in the intersection to install overhead wires. During this four-hour period, the TTC is detouring streetcars operating along the 301 Queen overnight and 501 Queen routes. Shuttle buses replace the cars, operating along Queen Street East between Neville Park Loop and River Street.
