TTC Subway Closure

There's also another major subway closure this weekend in Toronto, this time on the east side of Line 1 between Bloor and Lawrence stations. TTC staff will undertake track work during the suspension of service.

Southbound trains on Line 1 will turn back at Lawrence Station and northbound trains will turn back at Bloor Station. Shuttle buses will operate between the stations during the closure, and all stations will remain open for the sale of fares and boarding of surface routes.
