There are multiple TTC subway closures that will be taking place in the city over the weekend and into next week, with parts of Line 1 most affected.

Weekend closures

This weekend, beginning at midnight on Friday, November 13 until Sunday, November 15, there will be no subway service on the portion of Line 1 between Finch and St Clair stations to accommodate continued construction on the Eglinton Crosstown LRT project and TTC tunnel and signal upgrades.

Commuters will be able to use shuttle buses instead. The University side of Line 1 and the 97 bus will also be available as alternatives.

Also, North York Centre Station will be closed, but all other stations will remain open for fare sales and connection to surface routes and Line 4.

At Sheppard-Yonge Station, the automatic entrances and exits at Yonge St. and Poyntz Ave. and at Yonge St. and Anndale Dr. will be closed.

As will the exits at York Mills Station and the Old York Mills Road.

Customers who require Wheel-Trans service can speak with any TTC customer service staff member for assistance.

Next week

From Monday to Thursday subway service on Line 1 between Finch and Eglinton stations will end nightly at 11 pm for tunnel and signal upgrades.

For customers to get around, replacement shuttle buses will run, stopping at each station along the route.

TTC says that staff will be on hand to direct customers to shuttle boarding and offloading locations, which will vary from station to station. In addition to the shuttles, the 97 Yonge bus and the University side of Line 1 will be available as alternatives during the closure.

“While the TTC does most subway maintenance at the conclusion of service each night, it continues to require weekend and early weeknight closures to complete critical infrastructure and state of good repair work as well as ATC signal upgrades,” the transit commission notes.
