Wasn't the beginning of January nice? With the exceptions of a few delays here and there - and maybe a fire or two - it's been more than a month since Toronto had a proper subway closure. But all good things come to an end, and smooth commutes on Line 1 end next week.
Starting February 3rd and 4th, TTC crews will be back in action conducting repair programs, upgrades and inspections throughout Toronto's subway system, and it all begins with the suspension of service on Line 1 between St. Clair West and Union Stations.
Toronto travellers can expect eight straight weekends with service disruptions before a one week break at the beginning of April. After that, they'll start up again for multiple weekends in a row.
St Andrew, Dupont, Museum, St Patrick, Osgoode and Queen's Park will be closed February 3rd and 4th. Shuttle busses will be operating between St. Clair and Spadina.
The following two weekends - February 10th and 11, February 17th and 18th - will see Line 1 shut down between Lawrence and St. Clair Stations for track work.
On February 24th and 25th, Line 1 will be closed from St Clair to Sheppard-Yonge stations, again for track work.
Details on what will be closed and when can be viewed on TTC's website. Dates until April are currently available.
