The TTC is closing a portion of Line 1 this weekend: December 2-3

Dec 1 2017, 3:10 am

It’s the first weekend of December, and just like the rest of 2017, there will be closures on the TTC over the next few days.

Starting tomorrow evening, December 1, Osgoode Station will be closed all weekend for fare gate construction. According to the TTC, the closure is necessary to complete the floor work that can’t be done when the station is open.

Osgoode is one of the five remaining stations out of 24 to undergo fare gate work in this final wave of construction.

Queen’s Park, Sheppard-Yonge, Finch and Union stations are the remaining stations that will have the new fare gates with PRESTO installed at them over the next five months, said the TTC.

Over the next two weeks, fare gate construction will also require Queen’s Park to close at 10 p.m. on four nights – Dec. 6 and 7, and again Dec. 11 and 12.

During this weekend’s Osgoode closure, subway trains will pass through the station without stopping. Customers will need to use St Patrick or St Andrew to access the subway.

The station will reopen at the start of service on Monday.

Besides Osgoode, there’s another closure on Sunday, December 3.

Line 1 Yonge-University between Sheppard West and Lawrence West stations will be closed for track and signal upgrades. Frequent shuttle buses will provide alternate service to the stations in the closure area.

Regular subway service resumes Monday, Dec. 4 at 6 am.

The next scheduled subway closure is next weekend, December 9-10 on Line 1: St Clair to Lawrence stations for track work.
