Update on construction at Queen and Spadina–July 2012

13 Jul


               The tracks are now in place to allow streetcars to turn.


                                         It’s quite a maze of steel.

The congestion that the construction has created is extremely frustrating. However, it is necessary, and from what I have seen, the work is progressing quickly. It will soon be completed, although it may not seem that way if you have been caught in the traffic snarls. Spadina is a major artery funnelling traffic onto the Gardiner Expressway, so the closing of the intersection is very disruptive.

I have spent much of my adult life researching Toronto. Despite the traffic jams and daily congestion, I find it exciting and vibrant. I love the city and enjoy exploring it through my writing. One of the books, “The Villages Within”, was nominated for the Toronto Heritage Awards. If interested in novels with a Toronto setting, descriptions of the books are available by following the link:

They can be purchased in soft cover or electronic editions. All books are available at Chapters/Indigo and on The electronic editions are less that $4 on Kobo and Kindle. Follow the links:
