TTC to close portion of Line 1 this weekend
This weekend, Sat., Feb. 26 and Sun., Feb. 27, there will be no subway service on the portion of Line 1 between Sheppard-Yonge and St Clair stations due to Metrolinx construction of the Eglinton Crosstown LRT (ECLRT). The TTC will also take advantage of this closure to continue work on the Easier Access project at Lawrence Station.
Replacement shuttle buses will run, stopping at each station along the route. TTC staff will be on hand to direct customers to shuttle boarding and offloading locations. In addition to the shuttles, the 97 Yonge bus and the University side of Line 1 will be available as alternatives during the closure.
Lawrence Station will be closed. All other stations will remain open for people to load their PRESTO card, purchase PRESTO Tickets, or connect to surface routes.
At York Mills Station, the Old York Mills Rd. entrance/exit will be closed. Other entrances and exits will be available.
Customers who require Wheel-Trans service can speak with any TTC customer service staff member for assistance.
While the TTC does most subway maintenance at the conclusion of service each night, it continues to require weekend and early weeknight closures to complete critical infrastructure and state-of-good-repair work as well as ATC signal upgrades.
The TTC is committed to keeping customers informed about work and events that impact service and about alternate routes. For the most up-to-date information, follow @TTCNotices on Twitter or sign up for eAlerts.
