Surface routes also diverting for construction work, marathon

This Saturday, April 30, the portion of Line 2 (Bloor-Danforth) between St George and Pape stations will close at 11 p.m. as TTC crews replace a track beam on the Prince Edward (Bloor) Viaduct. Maintaining subway infrastructure in a state-of-good-repair is critical to ensuring a safe, reliable transit system.

Shuttle buses will run frequently, stopping only at subway stations along the route. Wheel-Trans buses will be available for customers requiring accessible transit.

This work is normally done on a Sunday morning, requiring the subway to open late. The TTC is closing the subway early on Saturday on this occasion to ensure those participating in, and watching, the GoodLife Fitness Toronto Marathon on Sunday morning are not inconvenienced.

The TTC co-ordinates all planned subway closures for critical maintenance work with the City of Toronto in order to limit disruptions to both TTC riders and city residents.
 
The subway will open, as normal, Sunday morning at 8 a.m.

The next three scheduled subway closures are:

  • Line 2: Bathurst to Jane closure – May 7-8
  • Line 2: Pape to St George late opening – May 15
  • Line 1 (Yonge-University): St Clair West to Downsview closure – May 28-29
