The TTC has 54 more closures planned for 2019 due to upgrades, inspections and repairs, according to a new report from the transit authority.

The report will be taken to the board on April 11.

Currently, the TTC implements four different types of closures:

  • Weeknight Early Closure: a section of the line is closed early, at 11 pm on weeknights, Monday to Thursday. This approach was tried in the fall of 2018 and will be used in 2019.
  • One Day Weekend Closure: a section of the line is closed for one day from end of service the previous night to start of service the following morning.
  • Full Weekend Closure: a section of the line is closed for two days from end of service Friday night to start of service on Monday morning. One full weekend closure is equivalent to five weeks of night work.
  • One Day Late Opening: a section of the line is closed, usually on a Sunday, for approximately four hours and regular scheduled service begins after 12 pm.

There are currently two major projects progressing on Line 1 Yonge-University – ATC Resignalling project and the Eglinton Crosstown project.

These make up the majority of the full weekend closures as the complexity of these projects do not allow for work to be conducted during the regular nightly maintenance window.

As of April 5, in addition to the 54 closures, there will also be four late Sunday openings.
