On July 15/16, Line 2 will be closed between Jane and Ossington stations for scheduled maintenance work. A shuttle bus will operate on Bloor Street between the two stations. This particular closure is the only one scheduled for Line 2 this year. For a complete schedule, please see: http://www.ttc.ca/Service_Advisories/Subway_closures/index.jsp.
To effectively and safely move our thousands of customers and to keep roads moving generally for all, the TTC is planning parking restrictions on Bloor Street between Jane and Ossington from approximately Saturday 3:30 a.m. to Monday 12:01 a.m. In Ward 14 in particular, the parking restrictions would be from Keele to Dundas West. TTC recognizes the importance of on-street parking for BIAs/businesses, but temporarily restricting parking is vital to provide transit reliability during this closure. See attached image for clarification.
Preliminary/essential track related work between Keele and Dundas West stations is required in advance of an upcoming subway weekend closure on Line 2 between Keele and Ossington (July 15/16).
On the weekend of July 15/16 subway service will be suspended on Line 2 between Keele and Ossington stations in order to carry out a variety of work. This will include rail and wood-tie replacement in the open-air section between Keele and Dundas West stations.
Prior to the subway weekend closure some preparation work is required – starting June 28
To ensure that the rail and wood-tie replacement work can be completed during the scheduled weekend closure, preliminary work is required. Starting June 28 after regular subway service ends, track crews will begin removing ballast/stones along a section of track between Keele and Dundas West stations. This activity will occur nightly leading up to the weekend closure.
A notice will be issued in this same area prior to the July 15/16 weekend.Preliminary night work - Keele to Dundas West - Line 2 closure

The City of Toronto invites you to take the Phase 2 online survey for the King St Pilot Study!
The King Street Pilot Study is about testing out how to redesign King Street to achieve three broad city-building objectives: moving people on transit more efficiently, improving public space, and supporting business and economic prosperity.
In this online survey, the City wants to hear your feedback about the proposed pilot design being considered between Bathurst Street and Jarvis Street:

This is a reminder that the 501 Queen route is scheduled to be replaced with buses along the entire route from May 7 to September 2. This change will allow for a number of planned construction projects to take place along Queen Street without requiring a major streetcar diversion. A full bus replacement will maintain service along the route, providing the most efficient travel during construction.
Please see the attached TTC transit pole card which will be installed along the route.501 Queen Route

Temporary Generators to Power Carhouse
Duration: April 23, 2017 to April 30, 2017*
*Timelines are subject to change, content is accurate at time of printing
As part of the electrical upgrades planned at the Roncesvalles Carhouse, the contractor will be using a generator to power the facility in order to maintain regular operation. To minimize noise, a low-noise generator has been secured to provide temporary power for approximately one week while crews install new permanent electrical feeds to the carhouse. During this period, area residents may notice an increase in noise.
The generator will be situated the furthest distance possible from residential properties in order to minimize disruption to area residents. The generator selected for this work is commonly used in noise sensitive areas because of its low-decibel operating performance.
Given that the carhouse supports 24-hour transit service, the generator will operate continuously starting Sunday, April 23, 2017 until Sunday, April 30, 2017.
There will be no impact to streetcar operations.
For more Information:
As part of this year’s infrastructure improvement projects scheduled along the west end of the 501/301 Queen streetcar route, TTC is beginning track reconstruction on The Queensway from Claude Avenue (west of Roncesvalles Avenue) to the Humber Bridge, where the City of Toronto is presently working.

Please join us for the first Stakeholder Advisory (SAC) Meeting of Phase 2 of the Waterfront Transit Reset Study. The meeting will take place on Tuesday, March 28, from 6:30 to 8:30 at Metro Hall, 55 John Street, in Room 308/309, where the project team will provide an update of the study, including the project scope, timeline, Phase 2 objectives, and work completed to date.WTP2 SAC Meeting #2 Agenda
Waterfront Transit Reset - SAC Terms of Reference
From May 7 to September 2, buses will replace streetcars on the entire length of the 501/301 Queen route; between Long Branch Loop to Neville Park Loop.
A number of planned construction projects along the Queen streetcar route make it difficult to provide continuous uninterrupted streetcar service during the work. A full bus replacement will maintain service along the route, providing the most efficient travel during construction, and will help avoid major diversions that streetcars would otherwise be required to use.
The projects on the 501/301 Queen route from May 7 to September 2 include:
• City/TTC track work on the Lake Shore and track and bridge work on The Queensway – January 2017 to end of year
• City streetscaping/sidewalk improvement work between Bathurst and Spadina – Spring 2017
• Eaton Centre/Hudson’s Bay pedestrian bridge re-construction – May to September 2017
• City watermain work at Queen/Coxwell – prior to Labour Day 2017 (this is followed by TTC track reconstruction in the fall)
• Various short-term TTC track/concrete repairs on Queen Street
– i.e. Queen/James, Queen/Simcoe, Queen/Bay, etc.
TTC service changes (May 7 to September 2, 2017)
501/301 Queen buses will operate between Neville Park Loop and Long Branch Loop.
On September 3, streetcars will return on the Queen route east of Roncesvalles Avenue. Buses will continue operating west of Roncesvalles Avenue due to ongoing construction along The Queensway/Humber Loop/Lake Shore.
In the Fall of 2017:
Two track reconstruction projects will take place on Queen Street that will require streetcar diversions:
• Queen and Coxwell intersection – September to October 2017
• Queen and McCaul – October to November 2017
Due to other track projects currently underway or already scheduled and coordinated for the summer, the Queen/Coxwell and Queen/McCaul track work cannot be completed during the summer months when the entire 501/301 Queen route is converted to buses.
Notices with additional details will be made available in advance of projects affecting TTC customers and local communities.
