TTC track upgrades close portion of Line 1 this weekend
December 7, 2017
This weekend, Dec. 9-10, 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.
Completion of this work, and some additional necessary repairs, will allow the TTC to lift the current speed restriction in the area that has slowed trains for the last several weeks by the end of December.
During the closure, shuttle buses will operate, stopping only at subway stations along the way.
The TTC encourages customers to use the University and Spadina portion of Line 1 if travelling in and out of the downtown core this weekend.
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.
Regular subway service resumes Mon., Dec. 11 at 6 a.m.
This is the last scheduled closure of 2017.
