Project progress

Work continues on Parliament Street streetcar track replacement in Toronto

the $4.75-million Parliament Street streetcar track replacement and road surface reconstruction project

SAUL CHERNOS

It’s been a busy summer for road construction in Toronto. Take the $4.75-million Parliament Street streetcar track replacement and road surface reconstruction project.

With CRCE Construction Ltd. as general contractor, TTC crews are replacing old track, Black & McDonald is upgrading signal and electrical systems, Core Excavation Ltd. is digging up old pavement, including curbs and sidewalks, and Gazzola Paving Ltd. is laying down the fresh asphalt.

Construction began July 26 and Gord MacMillan, the city’s director of design and construction, expects work to conclude by Christmas. Streetcar tracks and their substructure need replacing every 20 years or so, MacMillan says, describing this as a state-of-good-repair project.

To minimize disruption at major intersections between Gerrard and King streets, crews have sometimes worked round the clock. The city also co-ordinated with various utilities to ensure surface work followed earlier gas line and watermain repairs.
