Construction of new track has proceeded north on Ossington from Dundas and is in various stages of completion. Excavation of the roadbed at the north end is in progress between Shannon and just south of College (behind me in the photo below), the limit of the work.
Original article from September 17, 2013:
The track on Ossington Avenue between Dundas and College is one of two remnants of the Dovercourt car, a busy streetcar line that served the industrial area near King and Strachan.
The TTC is nearing the end of its two-decade long program of bringing its tangent (straight) track up to modern standards, and Ossington is among the sections of diversion and short turn trackage left to complete. (Other segments include Victoria, Bay, part of McCaul and Wellington.)
Work began at Dundas and is in various stages north to College. 63 Ossington buses divert around the work site via Dufferin Street. Just north of Dundas, the street is ready to receive the foundation slab.
Looking south at Ossington & Shannon: Demolition of the old concreete is in progress, and strings of new rail lie in wait against the east curb.
