There will be no subway service on a portion of the TTC’s Line 1 this weekend due to ATC signal upgrades.

On March 13, there will be no service between Eglinton station and King station as crews work on the signal system.

Summerhill station and Dundas station will be closed on Saturday, but all other stations will remain open for fare sales and access to surface routes and Line 2.

As King Station is not accessible, customers who wish to travel northbound on the Yonge side of Line 1 and require an accessible connection are advised to exit at Union Station and see a TTC customer service employee for assistance.

On Sunday, March 14, there will be no subway service between Sheppard-Yonge station and Bloor-Yonge station due to the upgrades.

Summerhill Station will be closed, but all other stations will remain open for fare sales and access to surface routes and Lines 2 and 4.

The Old York Mills Road entrance at York Mills station will be closed, as will the automatic entrances at Ranleigh Avenue and Bedford Park Avenue at Lawrence station. All other entrances will be open.

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

Shuttle buses will be running throughout the weekend closures, and TTC staff will be available to direct customers to boarding and offloading locations.

The University portion of Line 1 and the 97 Yonge bus will be available as transit alternatives on both days.

In addition to this weekend’s closures, Line 1 will be closed between St George station and St Andrew station for 10 days beginning on Monday, March 15.

The closure is due to work being completed on the subway tunnels, and service will resume at 6 am on March 25.

“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 TTC said.
