This summer, the TTC will rebuild the special work at the intersections of Broadview with Dundas and with Gerrard, as well as replacing the tangent track between these two locations. Minor repairs are also planned between Gerrard and Danforth.
This post will track the progress of the work.

By the fourth day of the project, the old intersection had been demolished and the new concrete foundation was nearly ready for the new track.

On day seven, the intersection is fully in place, and work is in progress on various connecting tracks.
The next stage planned for about July 9 will shift the focus to the tangent track between Dundas and Gerrard. This segment has already been built to “new” standards, and will only require excavation down one layer to expose the top of steel ties already in place. The new track (now stored north of Queen) will be pulled into place and clipped to the ties.
A few weeks later, the intersection at Gerrard will close for complete reconstruction. 504 King and 505 Dundas buses will shift to use the roads connecting to Gerrard at St. Matthews. 506 Carlton buses will divert via River, Dundas and Logan both ways.
