Work description and purpose

Next weekend, October 12 and 13, the portion of Line 2 between St George and Woodbine stations will be closed to allow TTC crews to perform essential track maintenance.

One full weekend of work during a subway closure accomplishes as much as five weeks of overnight work, due to the limited timeframe when the subway is not operating. Please see ttc.ca for a list of upcoming subway closures.

Parking restrictions on Danforth Avenue

To reduce congestion and help improve travel times for all on Danforth Avenue during this subway closure, parking will be temporarily restricted near key intersections (stations), with high volumes of buses and customers boarding and off-loading. The intersections on Danforth Avenue affected are Broadview Avenue, Chester Avenue, Pape Avenue, Donlands Avenue, Linnsmore Crescent and Coxwell Avenue.

The parking restrictions will be in effect between 6 a.m. Saturday to 2:30 a.m. Sunday, and 7:30 a.m. Sunday to 2:30 a.m. Monday.

TTC collected travel time data during a 2016 subway closure between Broadview and Pape when similar parking near stations was restricted on Danforth Avenue. Travel times were reduced significantly compared to a previous subway closure in which all on-street parking remained and traffic jams restricted all road users on the Danforth.

Parking restrictions near Woodbine Station

To maintain efficient shuttle bus service during this closure, shuttle buses will not enter Woodbine Station. Eastbound shuttle buses will operate via Strathmore Boulevard and Cedarvale Avenue to route westbound on Danforth Avenue.

To assist with this bus routing, parking will be temporarily restricted on the east side of Woodbine Avenue, south side of Strathmore Boulevard, west side of Cedarvale Avenue and north side of Danforth Avenue. The restrictions will be effect between 6 a.m. Saturday to 2:30 a.m. Sunday, and 7:30 a.m. Sunday to 2:30 a.m. Monday.

Transit service – shuttle buses

Shuttle buses will operate. Wheel-Trans service will be available for customers requiring accessible service. Customers should see any TTC employee to request the service.

Maintaining subway infrastructure in a state of good repair is critical to ensuring a safe and reliable transit system. Thank you for your patience as we work to keep transit and traffic moving during this subway closure.
