TTC track upgrades close portion of Line 1 this weekend
November 8, 2017
This weekend, Nov. 11-12, TTC crews will continue work to replace special track and switches just south of Eglinton Station, requiring the portion of Line 1 Yonge-University between St Clair and Lawrence stations to close.
During the closure, shuttle buses will operate, stopping only at subway stations along the way.
Because Lawrence Station is not yet accessible, Wheel-Trans buses will operate from York Mills and St Clair stations. Customers travelling southbound on Line 1 who require an elevator should exit the train at York Mills Station and speak to any TTC staff member to request Wheel-Trans service.
To provide a faster trip for TTC customers and keep traffic flowing, on-street parking will be restricted on both sides of Yonge St. between Lawrence and St. Clair Aves. from 9 a.m. to 9 p.m. Saturday and 11 a.m. to 9 p.m. Sunday. Parking is available at several Green P and private lots in the area. More information can be found at https://parking.greenp.com/.
Regular subway service resumes Mon., Nov.13 at 6 a.m.
There is no subway closure planned for next weekend to accommodate those attending the Santa Claus Parade.
The next scheduled subway closures are:
- Nov. 25-26 - Line 1: St Clair to Lawrence stations for track work.
- Dec. 2-3 - Line 1: Wilson to Sheppard stations for signal work.
- Dec. 9-10 - Line 1: St Clair to Lawrence stations for track work.
