This fall, the City of Toronto and the Toronto Transit Commission will replace the streetcar tracks at the intersection of Queen Street West and McCaul Street, John Street through to St Patrick Street, and on McCaul north to Renfrew Place. The intersection at Queen Street West and McCaul Street will be closed to through traffic during construction. Sidewalks on Queen Street West will remain accessible and pedestrians will be detoured around the work area. To accommodate this work, the intersection will be completely closed for three weeks. The work is anticipated to begin on Monday, October 16, 2017 and continue through until November 6, 2017. 

This work is required to bring the track infrastructure to a state of good repair and will improve sidewalks for Accessibility for Ontarians with Disabilities Act (AODA) compliance. This project is part of the Council- approved 2017 Capital Works Program. 

The OCAD University community should plan to build more time for walking between the north and south campuses, and for general commuting in the area of this intersection during this construction. 

View the pre-construction notice on the City of Toronto website for complete details.
