All the TTC and road closures in Toronto this weekend: November 30 to December 2

Nov 29 2018, 2:32 pm

It’s time to start planning your weekend, especially if you’re going to be heading downtown.

This weekend, the Toronto Christmas Market, Canada’s Walk of Fame Awards and a number of Santa Claus Parades will result in road closures throughout the city.

Additionally, there will be TTC track maintenance as well which will cause disruptions.

Here’s what to prepare for:

Road closures

Canada’s Walk of Fame Awards

The following road closures will be in effect to accommodate this event:

  • Front Street from Yonge Street to Scott Street will be fully closed at midnight on Thursday, November 29 until 3 am on Sunday, December 2.
  • The north curb lane of The Esplanade from Scott Street to Yonge Street, as well as the west curb lane on Scott Street south of Front Street, are now closed until midnight on Sunday, December 2.

Toronto Christmas Market – Distillery District

Northbound and southbound curb lanes on Parliament Street from Lake Shore Boulevard East to Front Street East will be closed from Friday, November 30 at 4 pm until Sunday, December 2 at midnight.

Etobicoke Lake Shore Santa Claus Parade

Lake Shore Boulevard West will be fully closed between Dwight Avenue and Thirty Sixth Street from 8 am to 12:30 pm on Saturday, December 1.

North Etobicoke Santa Claus Parade

Albion Road will be closed from Thistle Down Boulevard to Finch Avenue West from noon until 3:30 pm on Sunday, December 2.

TTC closures

Line 1 Yonge-University

This weekend, from December 1 to 2, TTC crews will continue to install the Automated Train Control (ATC) signal system on Line 1 Yonge-University, requiring portions of the line to close for periods of time.

On Saturday, December 1, there will be no service on the portion of Line 1 between Finch West and St George stations.

Shuttle buses will operate during this closure.

TTC

Line 1 between Finch West and Lawrence West

On Sunday, December 2, there will be no service on the portion of Line 1 between Finch West and Lawrence West stations.

Shuttle buses will operate during this closure.

TTC

At the end of the weekend, the entire area between Vaughan Metropolitan Centre and Dupont stations will run on ATC.

This milestone means that customers riding along that portion of the line will encounter more reliable service and fewer delays due to signal issues. When ATC is fully implemented on Line 1, it will provide a more modern and reliable signal system that will allow for an increase in the number of trains operating on the line.
