Queen Street West east of Roncesvalles Avenue - essential rail and concrete repairs

Effective May 27, 2023 to May 28, 2023

What we are doing and why

Starting May 27, TTC track staff will be conducting rail and concrete repairs on Queen Street West east of Roncesvalles Avenue.


This work is required to return the area to a state of good repair.


Work activities, hours, and timeline

  • Work activities will include concrete saw cutting, concrete breaking/removal, rail replacement, and placement of new concrete.
  • Rail work of this nature is required around the clock to ensure the quality installation of new rail and concrete. Concrete breaking/removal work will typically end at 11 p.m.
  • Expected overnight activities include rail welding and placing new concrete.
  • Concrete is poured into 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.


Motorist and pedestrian impact

  • Queen Street West between Roncesvalles Avenue and Wilson Park Road will be closed to motorists, with the exception of local traffic and buses. Paid duty officers or flag persons will be on-site to assist.
  • Pedestrian travel on Queen Street West will be maintained.
  • Traffic restrictions and the work zone will be cleared once the newly placed concrete has cured adequately for road traffic.


TTC service – 501 Queen route

  • 501L Queen replacement buses will operate through the area during this work.
  • 501 Queen streetcars will divert via Queen Street, Shaw Street, King Street and The Queensway.


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