Work description

This weekend, streetcars on the 504 A/B King route will be diverted to accommodate overhead wire maintenance at King/Church and King/Parliament and a number of rail repairs across King Street.

Work hours

To complete this overhead work safely and with minimal impact to traffic, the overhead wiring work will be conducted each night from 11:30 p.m. to 7 a.m. between Saturday, December 8 to Monday, December 10.

Equipment

On average, two to three TTC overhead trucks with hydraulic equipment will be used to carry out this work. While efforts will be made by the crew to keep noise to a minimum, beeping sounds when the trucks are backing up will be audible. Equipment lights may also be noticeable.

Traffic restrictions

Traffic will be maintained through the intersection with lane restrictions.

TTC service - 504 King Route

TTC has also planned rail maintenance along the King Street route during this weekend period requiring temporary changes to the 504 King streetcar service.
