Queen Street East Sidewalk Construction Notice

Sidewalk repairs have begun on Queen Street East.

Some store owners felt that the City’s notices which were distributed a few weeks ago were not sufficient. I have created a more informative notice and will be delivering them to business on Queen Street East this week.
Please feel free to contact my office if you have any questions.

Thank you,

501 Queen Streetcar Detour May 11-June 21

Hello All,

Due to a TTC construction project, the Queen and Leslie intersection will be closed from May 11- June 21.

This closure is required for underground utility upgrades and the installation of the new streetcar tracks and infrastructure in the intersection.

This project will unfortunately require that streetcars and buses be diverted for the duration of the intersection closure.

The detour on the 501 Queen streetcar will take approximately 12 minutes more each way. The frequency of the 501 Queen streetcar will essentially be unchanged, with service continuing to be scheduled every 5-7 minutes throughout the day, and every 9-10 minutes in the evenings. The replacement bus service along Queen Street will be scheduled at about the same as the streetcar, every 5-7 minutes during the day and every 8-10 minutes in the evenings.

The detour can be viewed below:


For more information, please view the pdf version of this notice: Leslieville TTC Project

Have a great day!
