Keele Street was widened to 48 feet in 1965 between Bloor Street and Annette Street to accom¬ modate the trolley bus line connecting Annette St. with the Keele St. subway station.

The work required extensive alterations to properties. Steps leading from the sidewalk to each house were rebuilt.

Concrete retaining walls were constructed to retain adjacent front lawns, and slopes faced with mortared flagstone paving where walls were not required.

Principally because of the opening of the  Bloor-Danforth Subway line, Keele Street was widened to 48 feet in 1965 between Bloor Street and Annette Street to accommodate the trolley bus line connecting Annette Street with the Keele Street subway station.
