This Sat., Nov. 17, there will be a one-day closure on Line 3 Scarborough as TTC crews carry out maintenance and state of good repair work. Periodic Line 3 closures are required as the TTC undertakes a complete life-extension rehabilitation of the tracks and vehicles to provide a more reliable and comfortable service over the next 10 years. The line will be decommissioned following the opening of the Scarborough Subway Extension.
Shuttle buses will run, operating via Midland Ave. to Scarborough Centre Station, with stops at Kennedy, Lawrence East, Ellesmere, Midland and Scarborough Centre stations. Lawrence East Station will be serviced at Lawrence Ave. E. and Midland Ave., and Ellesmere Station will be serviced at Lawrence Ave. E. and Ellesmere Rd.
Ellesmere, Midland and McCowan stations will be closed but all other stations will remain open for fare sales and transfers to surface routes. All local surface connections will continue to run as scheduled.
Wheel-Trans will be available upon request from any station during the weekend. Customers can speak with a TTC staff member to request Wheel-Trans service from any station and for information about service frequency. Kennedy Station is accessible.
