(They’re building new tracks to connect the future Leslie Barns streetcar maintenance and storage facility to the tracks on Queen Street East.)
The contractors have scheduled crews to work this weekend, tomorrow, Saturday, September 12 and Sunday, September 13 from 7 a.m. until 7 p.m., when they’re:
- installing a new storm sewer and upgrading utilities near the intersection of Leslie Street with Eastern Avenue. Due to challenging soil conditions and the need to re-open this intersection as soon as possible, work starts earlier than usual.
- upgrading utilities near the intersection of Leslie Street with Commissioners Street.
Crews start working on the southwest corner of the intersection of Leslie Street with Queen Street East, in front of the Duke of York, Monday, September 15. They’re installing a new duct bank for communications cable and foundations for new poles. They’re also building new sidewalks. During this work, they’ll block the east-west pedestrian crossing on the south side of Queen East. Flag people will help safely direct pedestrians until the new sidewalks are completed.
