Reminder: 10-day closure beginning Monday

The TTC is also reminding customers that beginning Mon., Mar. 15, the TTC will close the portion of Line 1 between St George and St Andrew stations to allow crews to continue important tunnel improvements. The closure will last 10 days, with regular service resuming at 6 a.m. on Thurs., Mar. 25.

Customers can expect bus service every 60 seconds during peak periods and very consistent service to continue throughout the day. Service levels have been designed based on current customer volumes.

Customers travelling into the city are encouraged to start their journey at Finch Station, or at any other station on the Yonge side of Line 1, to avoid the closure area. Subway service will continue to run every three-to-four minutes.

East-west service will be available, as usual, on College (506 Carlton), Dundas (505), Queen (501) and King (504) streets, for customers connecting from Yonge St.

Museum, Queen's Park, St Patrick and Osgoode stations will be closed for the duration of the 10-day subway closure. Customers should note that all subway entrances/exits at these stations will be closed, including TTC connections to hospitals. St George and St Andrew stations will remain open for fare sales and connection to surface routes and Line 2.

Customers who require Wheel-Trans service can speak with any TTC customer service employee for assistance.

While the TTC does most subway maintenance at the conclusion of service each night, it continues to require weekend and early weeknight closures to complete critical infrastructure and state of good repair work as well as ATC signal upgrades.

The TTC is committed to keeping customers informed about work and events that impact service and about alternate routes. For the most up-to-date information, follow @TTCNotices on Twitter or sign up for eAlerts.
