TTC track repairs at King / Charlotte,
starting November 30

The TTC is planning a major track-reconstruction project at the intersection of King Street West with Charlotte Street next spring. However, TTC staff have also recently identified the need for urgent track repairs at the intersection to allow streetcars to continue operating safely along the tracks. Track staff are repairing the tracks from Monday, November 30 until Thursday, December 3.

The work restricts traffic to just one lane in each direction. The City of Toronto will prohibit on-street parking and restrict turning to create a safe work zone for the crew, and provide a temporary location for storing the new rails until the crews install them. Motorists may still access Charlotte Street. TTC streetcars and buses serving the 304 King overnight and 504 King routes and streetcars serving the 310 Spadina routes continue to operate through the work zone.

Starting at about 8 a.m. Monday, November 30, a TTC track crew occupies the centre lanes. The crew saw-cuts the concrete track area and starts digging out a small section of track. Work continues until 10 p.m.

Tuesday, December 1, the crew replaces the rail in the excavated area. Crews may also work overnight to weld and grind rails.

Wednesday, December 2, crews place the new concrete and allow it to cure.

They’ll remove the work zone Thursday, December 3 by about 5 a.m.
