City of Toronto and TTC contractors continue the project to upgrade the street, improve the water-service infrastructure and install streetcar tracks on Leslie Street.

(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 tomorrow, Saturday, October 4 and Sunday, September 28 from 7 a.m. until 7 p.m., when they’re:

  • building a chamber as part of work to improve storm sewers at Leslie and Commissioners Streets;
  • excavating between Eastern Avenue and Mosley Street; and
  • installing new track south of Eastern Avenue.

Monday, October 6, crews start working on the northeast corner of Queen Street East and and Leslie Street to complete pole foundations, including pouring concrete pours. They’ll block the sidewalk as part of this work. Flag people will help safely direct pedestrians around the work zone.


The TTC continues to detour buses operating along the 31B branch of the 31 Greenwood route and the 83 Jones route. Buses operating along the 143 Downtown / Beach express route have resumed regular service.
