TTC track upgrades close portion of Line 1 this weekend

This weekend, Oct. 27-28, TTC crews will 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 this 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

Regular subway service resumes Monday, Oct. 18 at 6 a.m. The next scheduled subway closures are:
- Nov. 4-5 - Line 1: St George to Sheppard West for signal work.
- Nov. 11-12 - Line 1: St Clair to Lawrence stations for track work.
- Nov. 25-26 - Line 1: St Clair to Lawrence stations for track work.
