Like most weekends in Toronto, the TTC has announced a series of closures and maintenance diversions for this weekend.

On April 21 and 22, a portion of Line 1 Yonge-University between St Clair West and Union station will be closed as TTC crews continue installation of the Automatic Train Control (ATC) signal system.

St Clair West, Spadina, St George, St Andrew and Union stations will be open for fare sales and connections to surface vehicles. All other stations on this part of Line 1 will be closed.
