This weekend, Feb. 10-11, Metrolinx crews will continue construction on the Eglinton Crosstown LRT, requiring the TTC to close Line 1 Yonge-University between Lawrence and St Clair stations.
Express shuttle buses will run throughout the weekend, stopping only at stations along the route. Customers are encouraged to use the 97 Yonge bus and the University side of Line 1 as alternatives during the closure.
Parking on the southbound side of Yonge St. (west curb lane) between Lawrence and St Clair Aves. will be restricted on Saturday to keep transit and traffic moving.
Davisville Station will be closed throughout the weekend. Buses that normally service the station will board outside on Yonge St., Chaplin Cres., and Davisville Ave. TTC staff will be on site to direct customers and answer questions. Please refer to the attached map for more information.
All other stations will be open for fare sales, connections and access to surface vehicles.
Current work on the Eglinton Crosstown LRT project includes construction below the existing TTC station at Eglinton, a shift of the TTC's platform to the north and a new TTC Tunnel Ventilation System at the south and north ends of the subway platform.
The Eglinton Crosstown LRT is scheduled to open in 2021.
Metrolinx requires a total of 24 closures for Crosstown construction this year. This is the first of 15 between St Clair and Lawrence; an additional eight will take place between St Clair and Sheppard stations and one will take place between St Clair and Finch.
