TTC upgrading wiring on McCaul Street,
December 19

TTC electrical crews upgrading the streetcar power cables along the east side of

  • McCaul Street between Queen and Dundas Streets West

Saturday December 19 morning and afternoon.

They do not have to occupy the track allowance or the McCaul Loop while they work. They’ll set up a moving work zone in the east curb lane.

Upgrading the overhead wiring is necessary so the TTC may safely operate its new low-floor Flexity streetcars. Over the past two years, electrical crews have been upgrading the overhead wire infrastructure along all streetcar routes in the TTC network.

Crews work from 6 a.m. until 4 p.m. They’ll use two to three TTC overhead trucks with hydraulic equipment will be used to carry out this work on the east curb lane. You may hear beeping sounds from back-up alarms on the trucks. They’ll maintain traffic through the moving work zone with some lane restrictions.

Since the TTC does not operate streetcars along McCaul Street Saturdays, the work will not disrupt regular TTC services.
