Reminder: Portion of TTC Line 1 closed this weekend
July 13, 2018
The TTC is reminding customers that this weekend, July 14-15, Metrolinx requires a closure to Line 1 Yonge-University between Lawrence and St Clair stations to continue construction of the Eglinton Crosstown LRT.
Shuttle buses will run frequently along Yonge St., stopping outside each station along the route. Customers can use the 97 Yonge bus, in addition to the University side of Line 1 as alternatives during the closure.
To keep transit and traffic moving, parking will be restricted on the following streets:
- Yonge St. between Eglinton and St. Clair Aves. (Saturday only)
- Lawrence Ave. W. outside of Lawrence Station
- St Clair Ave. E. outside of St Clair Station
Parking will also be restricted on Bedford Park and Avoca Aves., and on Pleasant Blvd.
Wheel-Trans will be available upon request from any station through the weekend. Customers can speak with any TTC staff member for more information about service frequency.
Current work on the Eglinton Crosstown LRT project includes construction below the existing Eglinton subway station.
The Eglinton Crosstown LRT is scheduled to open in 2021.
A similar closure will take place next weekend, July 21-22. The TTC is committed to keeping customers informed about work and events that impact service and about alternative routes. For the most up-to-date information, follow @TTCNotices on Twitter or sign up for eAlerts.
