1 0

If you drive a lot on Queen Street east in Toronto, you can expect some big delays in the coming months.

The TTC is installing and replacing streetcar tracks, as well as upgrading the infrastructure before the new streetcars are put on the road.

As you can expect, it will mean closures must take place.

The intersection of Queen and Leslie streets will be closed to all traffic from May 11 to June 21 for track installation.
   
The intersection of Queen and Victoria streets will be closed while workers replace tracks and switches from May 11 to 31.
    
The intersection of Queen Street and Broadview Avenue will be closed from June 30 to July 25 for track and switch replacement.

Crews will also be putting in a connecting track from Queen Street line to a new facility where the new streetcars will be stored on Leslie Street. They'll also be replacing water mains under the tracks that are 80 years old.

There will be streetcar diversions in the area while the work is taking place. The 501 Queen and 504 King streetcars will be diverted, and replacement buses will run along Queen between Coxwell Avenue and River Street.

Additional buses will run along Greenwood, Jones and Pape Avenues to help customers get to the Bloor-Danforth subway line.

    Are those dates based on estimates before CUPE's Maximum Overtime and "One man working, five men watching" policies are taken into account, or after?
