Work description and purpose
Starting April 23, TTC will be conducting concrete repairs to a section of streetcar track allowance on Carlton Street, west of Church Street. The work is required to return the area to a state of good repair for all road users.
Work will require concrete breaking/chipping and placing new concrete.
*Spring weather conditions can delay the start of planned local rail/concrete repairs. In such instances, the work is rescheduled for the next best available date.

Traffic and pedestrian restrictions
Crews will occupy the streetcar track allowance (centre lane) to conduct the repairs.
Traffic will be maintained in both directions through the work area.
Some parking and turning restrictions will be required to create a safe work zone for the crew.

Work hours and timeline
The work zone will be established around 5 a.m. on the first day of work activity and will be in place until completion. Lanes are scheduled to open by 5 a.m. on April 27, 2018.
Activities will include milling/breaking old concrete and placing new concrete. The majority of removal will be done between the hours of 7 a.m. and 9 p.m. Some overnight work may be necessary. Concrete will be placed afterwards and left to cure overnight.
Lane restrictions through the work area will remain in place for approximately 24 hours after new concrete is placed to allow it to cure before vehicle traffic is allowed to travel over the repaired area.

TTC service changes
The 506 Carlton streetcar route is currently operated with buses and will be maintained through the work area.
Thank you for your patience during this essential concrete repair.
