A portion of the TTC’s Line 1 will be closed this weekend for ATC signal upgrades in addition to early closures next week for further testing.

Weekend closures

Shuttle buses will be running and stopping at each station, with TTC staff available to help riders along the route.

The 97 Yonge bus and the University side of line 1 are also available for transit riders during the closure.

Automatic entrances and exits at Shepard-Yonge Station at Yonge Street and Poyntz Avenue and Young Street and Anndale Drive will be closed.

The entrances and exits at Old York Mills Road at York Mills station will be closed.

As for Lawrence Station, the entrances and exits at Ranleigh Avenue and Bedford Park Avenue will also be closed.

“North York Centre Station will be closed. All other stations will remain open for fare sales and access to surface routes and Line 4,” said the TTC.

Next week closures

From Monday, October 19 to Thursday, October 22, Subway service on Line 1 from Shepard-Yonge and St. Clair Stations will close early at 11 pm for tunnel and signal upgrades.

“Replacement shuttle buses will run, stopping at each station along the route. TTC staff will be on hand to direct customers to shuttle boarding and offloading locations, which will vary from station to station,” said the transit committee.

The 97 Yonge bus and the University side of line 1 will also be available for transit riders during the closure.

Stations on the affected routes will remain open for PRESTO sales and fare payments.

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

“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 transit commission.
