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.
From June 9 to 10, a portion of Line 1 Yonge-University between Sheppard West and Lawrence West stations will be closed from 11 pm on Saturday to 11 am on Sunday, as TTC crews continue installation of the Automatic Train Control (ATC) signal system.
Yorkdale Station will be closed during this time, but all other stations will remain open for fare sales and transfers.
According to the TTC, shuttle buses will run on Saturday until the end of regular subway service at approximately 1:30 am and restart at 8 am on Sunday until regular subway service resumes at 11 am.
Wheel-Trans service will be available for customers requiring an accessible connection. To request service, customers can speak with TTC staff at any location in the system.
The TTC has had to postpone several scheduled subway closures since April. The TTC’s largest union, ATU Local 113, is no longer agreeing to allow overtime beyond 48 hours.
The TTC is currently hiring more operators and expects to resume regularly scheduled subway closures in July.
