With the long weekend coming up, expect closures on the TTC’s Line 1 for three days.
According to the TTC, this Friday, the portion of Line 1 Yonge-University between Finch West and Wilson stations will close until start of service on Monday morning as TTC crews perform track work related to Automatic Train Control (ATC) installation.
Express shuttle buses will run on all three days and all stations will remain open. Wheel-Trans will be available at Finch West and Lawrence West for customers requiring an accessible connection.
Line 1 will be closed b/w Finch West & Wilson this Friday – Sunday for track & signal work. Shuttles will be running. Check https://t.co/JQObTkLkfy for alternate routes

The TTC says that when ATC is fully implemented on Line 1, it will provide a more modern and reliable signal system that will allow for an increase in the number of trains operating on the line. While the TTC does most subway maintenance at the conclusion of service each night, it continues to require weekend closures to complete critical infrastructure and ATC upgrades.
The next scheduled subway closures are:
– April 8: Line 2 Bloor-Danforth – St George to Broadview – late opening for track work
– April 14-15: Line 2 – Kipling to Jane for track work
– April 21-22: Line 1 – St Clair West to Union for ATC signal upgrades
