TTC streetcar work to close Queen and McCaul intersection

News Oct 13, 2017 by Toronto Newsroom City Centre Mirror

The intersection of Queen and McCaul streets in downtown Toronto will be closed for three weeks for TTC streetcar track replacement.

The intersection will be fully closed in all directions from Oct. 16 beginning at 5 a.m. until Nov. 6 at 6 a.m., the city said in a news release.

Alternate roads for eastbound and westbound traffic in the area include Richmond, Adelaide or Dundas streets. Alternate roads for northbound and southbound traffic in the area include University or Spadina avenues.

Pedestrians will be safely detoured around the work area on sidewalks or walkways, the city added.

Work on the project will take place seven days a week from 7 a.m. to midnight, but some work will occur on a 24/7 basis to complete the project faster.

“The first few days will be the most disruptive as they involve breaking and removing concrete within the streetcar-track areas,” the release said. “The work to break up the concrete will stop at 11 p.m.”

TTC streetcar and bus services will be diverted around the closed intersection.
