We may have just come off a long weekend, but it’s already time to start planning the weekend ahead — especially if you’re planning on using the TTC.
On July 7 and 8, Metrolinx will be closing Line 1 Yonge-University between Lawrence and St Clair stations for construction of the Eglinton Crosstown LRT, which is scheduled to open in 2021.
Throughout the closure, shuttle buses will run frequently along Yonge Street stopping outside each station along the route.
The TTC encourages customers to use the following alternatives:
- 97 Yonge bus
- The University side of Line 1
During this closure, parking will be restricted on the west side of Yonge Street between Eglinton and St. Clair Avenue, and Wheel-Trans will be available upon request from all stations.
Additionally, this Sunday only, Line 2 Bloor-Danforth will open late between St George and Broadview stations while the City of Toronto and TTC crews perform subway track work and maintenance on the Prince Edward (Bloor) Viaduct.
Subway service is scheduled to begin at 10 am.
Castle Frank, Sherbourne, and Bay stations will be closed but all other stations will remain open for fare sales and transfers.
Shuttle buses will be available in the morning and will board and offload outside each station, as follows:
- St George Station – board on Bedford Rd., disembark on St. George St.
- Broadview Station – board on Danforth Ave., disembark on Broadview Ave.
- All other stations – board and disembark on Bloor St.
