TTC Repairs and Road Closures Coming Up This Weekend




TTC Repairs and Road Closures Coming Up This Weekend

Expect delays and detours if you're planning to drive or take the TTC.

Subway track repairs and the annual Yonge Street 10K run will cause significant traffic and TTC disruptions this weekend.

On Saturday morning, the Yonge-University-Spadina line will be closing between Bloor and Eglinton stations so that workers can replace a 60-year-old subway track bed near Davisville. The TTC, which is also looking at the long-term, large-scale reconstruction of the tracks near Davisville, will be back in full gear Saturday at noon.

On Sunday, though, the Yonge Street 10K will also disrupt TTC service, as buses and streetcars will have to detour around the race route.

The race will mean a number of Sunday road closures. Yonge Street will be closed between Lawrence Avenue and Erskine from 6 to 11 a.m. for race set-up. Yonge Street will be closed between Erskine Avenue and Richmond Street from about 8:30 to 10 a.m. Parts of Richmond Street, Peter Street/Blue Jays Way, and Front Street West will be closed between 9 a.m. and 11 a.m. And parts of Bathurst Street, Fleet Street, and Fort York Boulevard will be closed from 6 a.m. until 1:30 p.m. for finish line set-up.

So if you’re looking to get around this weekend, your best bet might be your own two feet!
