Bloor-Danforth subway diversion continues this weekend

The TTC will again divert trains on the Bloor-Danforth subway this weekend, March 3 and 4, while TTC crews repair the tunnel between St. George and Bay Stations.

The TTC will split service on the Bloor-Danforth subway into two separate routes. Eastbound trains heading for Kennedy Station and westbound trains heading for Kipling Station will divert to, and go out of service at, Museum Station.

Passengers must switch trains at Museum Station to continue to journey east- or westward. The TTC has posted signs and TTC staff will be available at Museum Station to direct customers to the proper train. Trains headed for Kennedy, Kipling and Downsview will all use the regular northbound platform at Museum. Passengers on southbound Bloor-Danforth trains at Museum will have to leave their trains and cross the platform to transfer to a northbound Bloor-Danforth train.

Yonge-University-Spadina and Bloor-Danforth subway trains will share the same platforms at St. George and Museum stations. All trains will use the upper platform at St. George and the TTC will close the lower platform.

The TTC will also close Bay Station to all passengers. Bloor-Danforth trains headed for and travelling from Kennedy Station will pass through, but not stop at, the lower level of Bay Station. No trains will serve the upper level of Bay.

Last weekend was the first time since 1966 that paying subway passengers could glimpse lower Bay Station. Subways served lower Bay for just six months between February and September 1966.

The TTC has set up a special website to offer riders more information about the diversion.

The diversion continues every Saturday and Sunday throughout March. Regular weekend subway service resumes on Sunday, April 1.
