Another weekend, another series of TTC and road closures taking place throughout the city.

When planning out your weekend, keep in mind that there’s a subway line closure scheduled in addition to a number of road closures throughout the city for various events.

TTC Closure

This weekend, Metrolinx will be closing Line 1 Yonge-University between Lawrence and St Clair stations to continue construction of the Eglinton Crosstown LRT, which is scheduled to open in 2021.

Shuttle buses will run frequently along Yonge Street, stopping at each station along the route.

At Lawrence, Eglinton and Davisville stations, customers can board and disembark on Yonge Street.

At St Clair Station, customers can board inside the bus bay and disembark on St. Clair Avenue East, outside the station.

The TTC is recommending customers use the 97 Yonge bus, in addition to the University side of Line 1 as alternatives during the closure.

Wheel-Trans will be available upon request from any station through the weekend.
