City of Toronto issued the following announcement on May 10.
The intersection of Parliament Street and Gerrard Street East will be fully closed in all directions from Monday, May 14 beginning at 5 a.m. until Monday, June 4 at 6 a.m. while the TTC streetcar tracks are being replaced.
This work is required to bring the track infrastructure to a state of good repair.
Road users should expect delays and increased traffic on nearby roadways. Motorists wishing to drive in the area should use alternate routes, such as Jarvis Street, River Street, Bloor Street East and Dundas Street East.
Pedestrians will be safely detoured around the work area on sidewalks or walkways.
Cyclists are encouraged to dismount and walk around the intersection.
Work on the project will take place 24 hours a day, seven days a week. The first few days will be the most disruptive as they involve breaking and removing concrete within the streetcar track areas. The work to break up the concrete will stop at 11 p.m.
TTC streetcar and bus services will be diverted around the closed intersection. TTC route diversion information is available at ttc.ca or 416-393-4636.
Enhanced signage will inform drivers of the road closures, and signal-timing changes on parallel roads will help manage traffic in the area.
The City's web-based map to help residents and visitors make their travel plans is available at toronto.ca/roadrestrictions. Information about the City's planned capital construction work is available at toronto.ca/inview.
This work is part of the City's comprehensive, co-ordinated strategy to rehabilitate and upgrade Toronto's roads, transit and underground infrastructure for current and future needs. Details about this project are available at toronto.ca/downtownconstructionprojects.
