This will be the second of four expected weekend subway closures in March.
The TTC is still replacing a bunch of aging signals and relays on the University subway line (which turned 50 last week). And so, just like last weekend, there will be an interruption in subway service. Everything between St. George and Union stations will be shut down, starting Saturday at midnight. Service will resume on Monday, at 6 a.m. (Last weekend’s closure was for both Saturday and Sunday.)
Embedded above is a handy explanatory video, in which TTC CEO Andy Byford and Corporate Communications Executive Director Brad Ross try to make viewers feel like this isn’t that big a deal. Which, really, it isn’t, because the Yonge subway line will still be running normally, and shuttle buses will be stopping at all the closed stations.
The TTC expects to close the University line for two more weekends after this one while they complete their signal work. For more details, you can take a look at their press release.
