The Toronto Transit Commission is installing and replacing streetcar track and upgrading utilities and infrastructure at three intersections along Queen St. E. this spring and summer, requiring intersection closures at Leslie St., Broadview Ave. and Victoria St.

Planned closures are as follows:

Leslie St. and Queen St. E. - May 11-June 21: Replace 80 year-old water mains and install new streetcar tracks to connect to the Leslie Barns, the storage and maintenance facility being built to house Toronto’s new low-floor streetcars.

Victoria St. and Queen St. E. - May 11- 31:  Replace tracks and switches.

Broadview Ave. and Queen St. E. - June 30- July 25:  Replace tracks and switches.

The 501 Queen streetcar, and 504 King streetcar during the Broadview Ave. and Queen St. E. intersection closure, will divert during this work. Frequent replacement bus service will be provided along Queen St. E. between Coxwell Ave. and River St. Increased north-south bus service on Greenwood, Jones and Pape Aves. will help get customers to and from Line 2 (Bloor-Danforth) should they opt to take the subway.

The TTC, and the Leslieville and Riverside BIAs, remind everyone that businesses remain open, and encourage residents to continue to support local business during construction.

The TTC thanks its customers and the local community for their patience as we work to improve transit in Toronto.
