Get ready for a ton of TTC subway closures

Posted by Derek Flack / February 10, 2016

ttc subway closures 2016TTC subway closures are about to become a very common thing in 2016. There's been a bit of a reprieve to start the year, but as was the case in the late fall, scheduled shut downs of both Line 1 and 2 are about to ramp up. In fact, starting in April there will be a closure of some kind seven weeks in a row.

The words "shuttle bus" will become uncomfortably familiar in the coming weeks. But, as painful as it will be to get around the affected areas during the closures, the work is necessary to update aging infrastructure and to install the system required for automatic train control. The TTC just can't get all of this work done at the conclusion of service each night.

Here's a list of scheduled closures the TTC has just released. Head over to the TTC website for detailed information regarding each shut down.
