TTC to close portion of Yonge subway line for weekend track work
This coming weekend, Saturday, August 13 and Sunday, August 14, the TTC will be constructing a new double cross-over section of subway track south of St. Clair Station on the Yonge-University-Spadina line. Once completed, the new cross-over will result in more efficient and reliable service, allowing subway trains to terminate at St. Clair Station in the event of a disruption to subway service.
In order to undertake this work, the TTC will close the Yonge line from Eglinton Station to Bloor Station on Saturday and Sunday.
A frequent, accessible bus service will operate between Bloor-Yonge and Eglinton Stations. Buses will stop on the street at Rosedale, Summerhill, St. Clair and Davisville stations, and will enter the station at Eglinton.
Regular subway service will resume on Monday, August 15, 2011.
Two additional weekend closures are scheduled for this construction project in September and October, respectively.
