Work Description

TTC will be constructing (and modifying) streetcar platforms along Lake Shore Blvd (between Long Branch and Thirtieth St, as well as, between Burlington Street and the Sunnyside Loop)

This retrofit will allow people with mobility challenges and strollers to easily board the new low floor, accessible, air-conditioned streetcars.

Work will also include conduit for the future installation of a ticket vending machine at Long Branch

Traffic and other Impacts

Police officers (where required), construction hoarding and lane restrictions around selective platform locations will ensure a safe work environment and an efficient flow for motorists and pedestrians.

TTC Service Changes

The 501 and 301(night) Streetcar will be temporarily replaced by buses. Any changes to stop locations will be clearly posted with pole cards.

Work Hours

All work is scheduled to take place between 7:00 AM and 7:00 PM, Monday to Friday. Some weekend work may also be necessary.
