College / Brock track work:
TTC detours, May 12 to 15



The TTC is repairing streetcar tracks at the westbound stop on

  • College Street at Brock Avenue

from 6 p.m. Friday, May 12 until 5 a.m. Monday, May 15.

The TTC is detouring streetcars operating along these routes, during the project:

  • 306 Carlton overnight; and
  • 506 Carlton.

Since the TTC is also repairing the concrete beside the tracks at College Street and Spadina Avenue Saturday, it uses two different detour routings this weekend:

Shuttle buses replace the cars along two different routes during regular hours:

Buses also replace the cars along a different route overnight.

To decrease disrupting traffic and nearby residents during projects to repair or replace streetcar tracks, the TTC recently bought a concrete milling machine. The machine speeds the work, reduces the amount of digging by backhoes and reduces noise levels. However, effectively installing the new rail still requires overnight work, including concrete-chipping.

Crews occupy the track area on College Street, restricting traffic to the curb lanes through the work zone.

During this project, crews are:

  • removing old concrete to expose the old rail;
  • replacing the rail; and
  • placing new concrete.

They’re working “around-the-clock” — 24 hours a day — to make sure regular streetcar service can resume through the area Monday morning.

  • Friday, May 12, 6 p.m.: The TTC diverts the cars and the track crew start using the milling machine to remove most of the concrete in the track area. Then, they’ll chip the rest of the concrete to completely expose the rails. The crews also weld new strings of rail in the track allowance, which they’ll store on the tracks until they’re ready to install them. They’ll continue working into Saturday morning.
  • Saturday, May 13: Crews replace old rail with the new rail. They’ll also cut, weld and grind the rails.
  • Sunday, May 14: Crews place concrete in the track area and set it to cure. The new concrete cures until about 5 a.m. Monday, May 15, when the crews remove the work zone so that streetcars and regular traffic can resume over the track area.

The City of Toronto is restricting on-street parking in the area to create a safe work zone for the crew.
