TTC begins reconstruction tracks on Kingston Road

The Toronto Transit Commission and the city of Toronto will be reconstructing the streetcar tracks on Kingston Road between Queen Street East and Victoria Park Avenue.

This scheduled work is to ensure that the tracks are in good repair and that the stops are compatible with the next generation low-floor accessible streetcars.

Preliminary work will begin on June 3 and the entire track replacement project will be completed in December, 2013.

The work involves new streetcar tracks, reconstructed sections of the roadway, streetscape improvements and updates to traffic signals.
