Essential rail repair at King Street West and Queensway intersection

Posted on January 28, 2015

Transit Notice
Date: Saturday, January 31 to Monday, February 2, 2015
Work description and purpose
The TTC will be conducting a rail repair to a short section of track on King Street West just south of the Queensway/Roncesvalles/Queen intersection. The overall rail repair will include replacing rail, welding, grinding and placement of concrete.
Starting at approximately 8 a.m. on Saturday, January 31 a crew will begin breaking and removing the concrete in the track area to expose the rail for repair. This portion of work will be carried out during the daytime.

Once the section has been excavated, a new piece of rail will be installed and welded. This work will be completed by 10:30 p.m. Saturday evening. Concrete placement will follow on Sunday morning. While efforts will be made to keep noise levels to a minimum, noise will be unavoidable when certain equipment is in operation. The work area will be cleared for the resumption of King streetcar service on Monday morning.

Traffic restrictions
Traffic through the intersection will be maintained with a minimum of one lane in each direction through the work zone.

TTC service
Streetcars on the 504 King route will be diverted to accommodate this work. King streetcar service will resume in this area on Monday morning.
– 504 King streetcar service will be diverted in both directions via: King Street, Shaw Street, Queen Street and Roncesvalles Avenue to route.
