TTC subway closures this weekend
September 5, 2018
This weekend, Sept. 8-9, there will be no service on the portion of Line 1 Yonge-University between Lawrence and St Clair stations while Metrolinx crews continue construction of the Eglinton Crosstown LRT.
Shuttle buses will run frequently along Yonge St., stopping at each station along the route. At Lawrence, Eglinton and Davisville stations, customers can board and disembark on Yonge St. At St Clair Station, customers can board inside the bus bay and disembark on St. Clair Ave. E., outside the station. The TTC recommends that customers use the 97 Yonge bus, in addition to the University side of Line 1, as alternatives during the closure.
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.
In addition, this Sunday only, Line 2 Bloor-Danforth will open late between St George and Broadview stations while City of Toronto and TTC crews perform subway track work and maintenance on the Prince Edward (Bloor) Viaduct. Shuttle buses will run between these stations. Subway service is scheduled to begin at noon.
Castle Frank, Sherbourne and Bay stations will be closed but all other stations will remain open for fare sales and transfers. Shuttle buses will run throughout the morning and will board and offload outside each station, as follows:
• St George Station – board on Bedford Rd., disembark on St. George St.
• Broadview Station – board on Danforth Ave., disembark on Broadview Ave.
• All other stations - board and disembark on Bloor St.
Wheel-Trans will be available upon request from any station during the weekend. Customers can speak with a TTC staff member for more information about service frequency.
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.
