TTC repairing tracks at Kingston / Queen,
starting November 20

TTC track crews are replacing worn rails at the westbound streetcar stop on Kingston Road near Woodbine Loop (just north of Queen Street East, beside #8 Kingston Road).

The work restricts traffic to just one lane in each direction. The City of Toronto is prohibiting on-street parking and restricting turns to create a safe work zone for the crew and provide a temporary location for storing the new rails until the crew installs them. Streetcars serving the 502 Downtowner and 503 Kingston Rd routes and buses serving the 22 Coxwell and 322 Coxwell overnight routes continue to operate through the work zone throughout the project.

From 9 a.m. until 3 p.m. Friday, November 20, crews are saw-cutting concrete to prepare the track area for excavation.

No work takes place Saturday, November 21 or Sunday, November 22.

Starting at about 8 a.m. Monday, November 23, a track crew occupies the curb lane and welds rail into longer strings to get ready to replace the old rail. Another crew starts digging out about 60 metres (180 feet) of old track. The crew continues digging out the old track until about 9 p.m.

Tuesday, November 24 until Friday, November 27, the crew continues to excavate the section of track.

Saturday, November 28, a track crew replaces the rail in the excavated area. They may continue working overnight to weld and grind rails.

Sunday, November 29, crews install concrete and allow it to cure.

Monday, November 30, the crews remove the work zone before regular streetcar service resumes.
