Not one, but two TTC lines will experience partial closures this weekend.
This Saturday, April 6 only the portion of Line 1 between Lawrence and St Clair stations will be closed to allow TTC crews to perform essential track maintenance and continue work on upgrading the signal system to Automatic Train Control (ATC).
During the scheduled closure, 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.
In addition to shuttles, the 97 Yonge bus and the University side of Line 1 are available as alternatives during the closure.
All stations will remain open for fare sales and access to surface routes.
Wheel-Trans will be available upon request from any station throughout the weekend. As Lawrence Station is not yet accessible, customers requiring an accessible connection should use York Mills Station instead.
Full service on Line 1 will resume at 8 am Sunday morning.
