McCaul Loop – New Lubricator Installation between Grange Road and Renfrew Place

*Pending weather and unforeseen events.
Effective April 18, 2023 to April 23, 2023

What we are doing and why

In order to reduce noise from streetcar operations, starting on Tuesday, April 18, 2023, TTC track crews will be installing a new streetcar lubricator unit near the entrance to McCaul Loop. The work area will be on McCaul Street between Grange Road and Renfrew Place. Work activities will include concrete breaking, installing the new streetcar track lubricator unit, and concrete and asphalt replacement.




Work hours and timeline

  • Rail work of this nature is required around-the-clock to ensure quality installation of the new lubricator unit and concrete. Concrete breaking/removal work will typically end at 11 p.m.
  • Expected overnight activities include placing new concrete and clean-up.
  • 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 23.


Traffic and parking restrictions

  • Northbound lanes on McCaul Street between Queen Street West and Grange Road will be closed. Traffic will be reduced to one lane in the southbound direction.
  • Street parking will be restricted through the work zone. Parking garage egress will be maintained.
  • Traffic restrictions and the work zone will be cleared once the newly placed concrete has cured.


Pedestrian Impact

  • Sidewalk on the east side of McCaul Street will be closed through the work zone. Access to building entrances will be maintained. Paid duty officers or flag persons will be on site to assist.


TTC service

  • No impact to TTC service is expected.
