TTC Track Reconstruction Continues Along Queen Street West|
| || ||
Toronto's Works and Emergency Services, in conjunction with the Toronto Transit
Commission, will replace streetcar tracks on Queen Street West from Fennings
Street to Shaw Street, including the Queen Street and Shaw Street intersection,
beginning September 11, 2000.
The first area of construction is from Fennings Street to Shaw Street from
September 11 to October 3. Westbound lanes on Queen Street will be closed for
the duration of the construction from Fennings Street to Shaw Street. The
eastbound curb lane will remain open for eastbound traffic only.
The second area of construction is the Queen Street and Shaw Street
intersection. A full intersection closure is planned from 7:00 a.m. on
Thursday, October 19 to 7:00 p.m. on Monday, October 23. No vehicular traffic
will be permitted during the intersection closure at Shaw Street and Queen
All lanes of traffic will re-open between construction periods.
Road resurfacing and local sidewalk repairs will be done where necessary.
Some re-routing of traffic may take place on side streets for a short period.
Emergency vehicles will be accommodated at all times.
For the duration of the project, streetcar service on Queen Street West will be
re-routed around the construction area. Further changes to TTC services will
be posted on TTC routes and on the TTC's Web site at www.ttc.com. Transit route staff will be
on-site to direct passengers and answer questions. Up-to-date service details
are also available by calling the TTC Information Line at 393-INFO.
Except for local repairs, sidewalks will not be reconstructed as part of this
project. As a result, pedestrian access, as well as access to businesses, will
be maintained throughout the construction period.
