TTC Notice - Broadview Ave. & Queen St. E. Intersection Work

This year, from June 30 to July 25, the City of Toronto Engineering and Construction Services and the Toronto Transit Commission (TTC) will carry out major construction work at the intersection of Broadview Avenue and Queen Street East. This work is required to bring the track infrastructure and adjacent road to a state of good repair.

We recognize that any form of construction is disruptive to a community. It is our intention to complete the work as efficiently as possible and on schedule. Your patience during the construction period is appreciated.

Disruptions As with all construction projects, there will be noise, dust and other temporary inconveniences.

Public transit, parking, traffic and some pedestrian restrictions will be imposed in and around the work area.

  • Full intersection closure: No vehicles will be allowed to pass through the intersection for a three week period during the four week project starting on June 30.
  • Partial intersection closure: Traffic along Queen Street will be partially restricted for one week near the tail end of the construction period.
  • Reduce Parking: No parking in the active work zone and reduced on-street parking opportunities in the neighbouring areas.
  • Increased Traffic and Detours: Expect delays on Broadview Ave and Queen St. E. and increased traffic on side streets
  • Sidewalk Replacement: Sidewalks on the north side of Queen Street will need replacing following upgrades to the TTC rails. Existing sidewalk art affected by construction will be reinstated.
  • TTC Streetcar Detours: See reverse side.
The project team is working closely with local establishments and other construction sites near the work area to best coordinate driveway access and deliveries. Pedestrian access to businesses and walkways will be maintained on all sides of both streets at all times.

Work Hours

Work will typically take place from 7 a.m. to 11 p.m., Monday to Friday, and from 9 a.m. to 11 p.m. on weekends.

TTC Service Changes

During the road closure and construction, TTC streetcars will be diverted around the intersection and a bus service will operate. Details of the changes will be posted at transit stops along the affected routes and on the TTC website ( in advance of service changes.
