  • replace the old rail with new rail; and
  • place new concrete.

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

  • 306 Carlton overnight; and
  • 506 Carlton.

Shuttle buses replace the cars between Ossington Avenue and Bathurst Street along two routes:

Track replacement at College / Crawford and the resulting TTC service changes continue until July 19 (4 a.m.)


By 8 p.m. Friday, July 16, TTC track crews start setting up a work zones to replace worn rail at the eastbound streetcar stop on College Street at Crawford Street and on the east side of Crawford Street. They also start cutting into and milling the concrete to expose the old rail. The TTC explains, “While most work typically ends at 11 p.m., rail work of this nature requires periods of around-the-clock work to ensure quality installation of new rail and concrete.” Crews continue breaking concrete Saturday morning so they can cmpletely expose the old rail and then remove and replace it.

While crews install the new rail, they also cut, weld and grind the rail. They then place concrete in the track area and set it to cure. All traffic can again flow over the track area by 4 a.m. Monday, July 19.

Th work zones restrict traffic to the curb lanes. Traffic also flows around CafeTO patios. The City of Toronto is temporarily prohibiting on-street parking near the work zones to maintain traffic. Work zones may block motorists from turning left onto or off of College Street.
