Also out of commission starting this weekend: certain west-end streetcar routes.
You know the drill by now. Because of the TTC’s ongoing signal upgrade project, all subway service south of Bloor Street is going to be suspended this weekend, beginning on Saturday, October 12. That means there will be no trains running between St. George and Bloor stations on the Yonge-University-Spadina line.
Unlike most of the TTC’s other recent subway closures, though, this one won’t end on Sunday.
Instead, it will last throughout the Thanksgiving long weekend. Normal service is scheduled to resume at 6 a.m. on Tuesday, October 15. Shuttle buses will be running.
Meanwhile, in the west end, some streetcar track work is going to be making above-ground travel a little more complicated than usual. Beginning Sunday, October 13, stretches of several streetcar lines will be replaced with bus service for one to two months.
The 501/301 Queen and the 508 Lake Shore will both be affected between the Long Branch Loop and the Humber Loop. Things are scheduled to go back to normal on December 22.
Meanwhile, the 505 Dundas streetcar will be replaced by buses between Lansdowne Avenue and Dundas West Station. And it’s the same for the 506/306 Carlton, between Lansdowne Avenue and Keele Station. Both of these lines are expected to be back to normal by November 24.
