What we are doing and why?

Over the next two months, TTC will be upgrading the overhead infrastructure at the intersection of King Street and Shaw Street. The overhead wiring upgrade is necessary for the full operation of the TTC’s new accessible streetcars.

Traffic movement

Traffic will be maintained through the moving work zone with some lane restrictions.

Work hours

To complete this overhead work safely and with minimal impact to traffic, TTC staff will work between 12:01 a.m. and 5 a.m. nightly.


On average, two to three TTC overhead trucks will be used to carry out this work. While efforts will be made by the crew to keep noise to a minimum, beeping sounds will be audible when the trucks are backing up. Equipment lights may also be noticeable.

TTC service

Streetcar operations on King Street will be maintained.

Thank you for your patience during these overhead upgrades repairs.
