TTC removing overhead cables on Ossington Avenue,
November 26 and 27

TTC overhead crews recently installed new overhead cabling pole-to-pole along the east side of Ossington Avenue between College and Dundas streets. The crews are returning to remove the old cable along the same section of Ossington Avenue this Saturday, November 26 and Sunday, *November 27.

Typically, crews remove cable by cutting the old cable down in sections with overhead trucks, supporting the cable. The crews are working on the east side of the street along the curb lane.

Crews may temporarily block traffic lanes while they work, but they’re maintaining access to driveways and local streets. They’re placing orange cones in parts of the street as they work, temporarily blocking parking spaces as they work.

They’re also maintaining access to sidewalks as best as possible. They’re placing signs about their work at various locations along the sidewalk and stringing caution tape along the east curb between College and Dundas streets. Staff are monitoring the work activity from the sidewalk and helping to guide pedestrians through the work area.

The TTC is continuing to operate buses along the 63 Ossington and 316 Ossington overnight routes while the crews are working. It may also temporarily detour streetcars along Ossington Avenue if necessary.
