King Street West between Close and Spencer avenues - essential rail and concrete repairs

April 3 to 8, 2023
Effective April 3, 2023 to April 8, 2023

What we are doing and why

Starting on Tuesday, April 4, 2023 TTC track staff will be conducting rail and concrete repairs on King Street West between Close Avenue and Spencer Avenue. Work activities will include concrete saw-cutting, concrete breaking/removal, rail replacement, and placement of new concrete. This work is required to return the area to a state of good repair prior to streetcars resuming service through this section in the Spring.


Work activities, hours and timeline

  • Rail work of this nature is required around-the-clock to ensure quality installation of new rail and concrete. Concrete breaking/removal work will typically end at 11 p.m.
  • Expected overnight activities include saw-cutting and milling concrete, rail welding and placing new concrete.
  • Concrete is poured in the track area and set to cure. The new concrete requires curing time before the work zone is removed for the resumption of full road use by morning of April 7.


Traffic and parking restrictions

  • Traffic will be reduced to one lane in each direction through the work zone for the duration of the work.
  • Traffic restrictions and the work zone will be cleared once the newly placed concrete has cured adequately for road traffic.


TTC service – 504 King Route

  • 504 King replacement buses will continue to operate through this work zone.


Thank you for your patience as we work to improve transit infrastructure in Toronto.
