There’s a TTC subway closure in Toronto this weekend.
On November 3 and 4, there will be no service on the portion of Line 1 Yonge-University between Lawrence and St Clair stations while Metrolinx crews continue construction of the Eglinton Crosstown LRT, which is scheduled to open in 2021.
Shuttle buses will run frequently along Yonge Street, stopping at each station along the route.
At Lawrence, Eglinton and Davisville stations, customers can get on and off shuttle buses on Yonge Street. At St Clair Station, customers board inside the bus bay and exit on St. Clair Ave E, outside the station. The TTC recommends that customers use the 97 Yonge bus, in addition to the University side of Line 1, as alternatives during the closure.
More closures to come next week
Also, the TTC says that in order to expedite modernization of the subway signalling system and carry out important maintenance work, it will close Line 1 (Yonge-University) in the downtown core between Spadina and St Andrew stations at 11 pm on Monday, November 5 through Thursday, November 8.
There will be no shuttle buses for these weeknight closures.
Customers can use the Yonge side of Line 1, the 510 Spadina, 511 Bathurst and other local streetcar/bus services as replacement routes, including the 512 St Clair streetcar.
