This weekend starting at 10 p.m. on Friday, TTC overhead crews will be upgrading the overhead infrastructure on Gerrard Street. The overhead wiring upgrade is necessary for the future operation of the TTC’s new accessible streetcars. Over the past two years, electrical crews have been upgrading the overhead wire system along streetcar routes in the city. To complete this overhead work as safely and with minimal impact to traffic as possible, TTC staff will work each night between 10 p.m. and 5 a.m.
