Mar 4 2021, 1:07 pm

There will be no subway service on portions of the TTC’s Line 1 this weekend and early closures next week for work on the Eglinton Crosstown LRT project and upgrades.

Starting at 11 pm on March 5 to March 7, subway service from Finch to St. Clair stations will not be available due to continued construction on the Eglinton Crosstown.

Shuttle buses will be running and stopping at each station along the route, with TTC staff readily available to help customers at boarding and offloading locations.

“The University side of Line 1 and the 97 Yonge bus will also be available as alternatives,” said the TTC.

North York Centre Station will be closed; however, all other stations will stay open for PRESTO sales and access to surface routes and Line 4.

According to the TTC, at Sheppard-Yonge Station, the automatic entrances and exits at Yonge Street and Poyntz Avenue, and Yonge Street and Anndale Drive will be closed.

At York Mills Station, the Old York Mills Road entrance and exit will be closed. The automatic entrances and exits at Ranleigh Avenue, and Bedford Park Avenue at Lawrence Station will also be closed.

From March 8 to March 11, subway service from Finch to Eglinton stations will end nightly at 11 pm for tunnel and signal upgrades as well as track work.

“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,” said the TTC.
