The northwest arm of the TTC’s Yonge-University subway line will be closed this weekend for signal work.
Service will be suspended on both Saturday and Sunday from Downsview to St. George stations as TTC crews continue installing a new signal system.
Shuttle buses will run between Downsview and Lawrence West stations only, due to on-street construction around Eglinton West, St. Clair West, and Dupont stations.
The TTC said it is planning to double-up service on nine east-west bus and streetcar routes in order to move passengers from the University side of the line to the Yonge side.
The routes with additional service are:
- 7 Bathurst
- 14 Glencarin
- 32 Eglinton West
- 52 Lawrence West
- 84 Sheppard West
- 96 Wilson
- 109 Ranee
- 127 Davenport
- 512 St. Clair
Due to weekend sports events, including the Toronto Maple Leafs game on Saturday night and the Raptors game on Sunday, the TTC is adding subway service on Line 1 during the closure and on Line 2 from 3 p.m. to 11 p.m.
Full service will resume on Monday.
The next scheduled subway closure is for all of Line 4, the Sheppard-Yonge line, on March 4 and 5.
