Watermain and streetcar track replacement work begins on King Street West

TORONTO—The City of Toronto has started construction work on King Street West this week to replace a 146-year-old watermain and aging TTC streetcar tracks between Dufferin and Shaw streets.

According to the city, construction work will be completed over 10 months and is bundled into one project to save time, money and limit disruption.

Watermain replacement work is expected to be completed by the end of July. Crews are expected to work Monday to Friday between 7 a.m. and 7 p.m. There will be one lane of traffic open in each direction around a rolling work zone.

TTC track replacement work is anticipated to start in May and will be completed in phases with full road closures in effect around a rolling work zone:

  • May to June: Between Dufferin Street and Fraser Avenue
  • June to July: Intersection of Dufferin and King Streets
  • August to September: Between Fraser and Atlantic Avenues
  • September to October: Between Atlantic Avenue and Shaw Street

There will also be intermittent lane closures from October to December while road restoration and overhead streetcar work are completed.

Streetcar track replacement work is expected to take place 24 hours, seven days a week, as the TTC needs to complete some rail installation work overnight to protect the integrity and quality of the new rails and concrete, a release indicates.

The city and TTC have structured the hours of construction to minimize noise disruption.
