Queen Street closed to eastbound traffic for two weeks from University Avenue to York Street
Queen Street from University Avenue to just east of York Street in downtown Toronto will be closed to eastbound traffic from Saturday, June 29 at 6 a.m. to Tuesday, July 16 at 6 p.m. for streetcar track reconstruction and road work.

Westbound traffic will be reduced to a single lane for the duration of the project. Pedestrian access will be maintained at all times.

In addition, York Street will be closed in both directions from Richmond Street to Queen Street during the same two-week period.

Alternative eastbound routes for motorists include Adelaide Street, King Street and Dundas Street. Alternative northbound routes that could be considered are Bay Street and University Avenue.

In addition, the City of Toronto has introduced T.O. INview, a map-based application showing planned capital construction work across the city:

Toronto is Canada's largest city and sixth largest government, and home to a diverse population of about 2.8 million people. Toronto's government is dedicated to delivering customer service excellence, creating a transparent and accountable government, reducing the size and cost of government and building a transportation city. For information on non-emergency City services and programs, Toronto residents, businesses and visitors can dial 311, 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.
