With 204 new, accessible streetcars on order and the Leslie Barns facility well into construction, the City of Toronto and TTC are gearing up to begin major construction on Leslie Street this year. The project is about much more than a new streetcar track on Leslie Street from Commissioners to Queen. Starting this Spring, we will begin upgrades to streetscaping, street lighting, sewers, watermains and utilities. All work is being coordinated under one contract to reduce disruption, with the majority of work coming
in advance of the new streetcar track installation.
Traffic and Disruption Management
The city is planning to implement a comprehensive approach to traffic and needs your input. This includes strategies to prevent infiltration onto residential streets and keep traffic flowing on major roads. We know that construction won’t be easy, but we are committed to keeping you informed early and often and to reducing disruption as much as possible. After community input is reviewed and the contractor has improved the plans, a second meeting will be to held to present the final schedule, construction phasing and disruption management plan for the community. Ensuring pedestrian, cyclist and driver safety is the top priority.
The streetscape will be significantly upgraded along Leslie Street between Queen Street and Tommy Thompson Park. The design includes wider sidewalks, customized street lights and hundreds of native tree plantings around the future facility.
