Bloor - Danforth subway on diversion May 22-24



bloor_danforth_tunnel_construction.gif

Due to track work at St. George station on the Bloor - Danforth line, trains on the Bloor-Danforth subway line will not service St. George station on the weekend of May 22-24th. This is to allow track work to be completed on the crossover at St. George station.

Trains will be operating from Kennedy to Museum stations and from Kipling to Museum stations utilizing the wye junction.

Those of you who were around at the time may remember a similar diversion in 2007 due to tunnel repairs between Bay and St. George stations.

During this diversion, it is recommended, if you are attempting to connect to subway heading north or south, to catch north and southbound trains at St. George station if you are coming from the west and at Museum if you are coming from the east.

Trains operating to and from Museum in the west end of the city will be serving St. George station using the upper platform normally reserved for the Yonge-University-Spadina line.

BLOOR DANFORTH TRAINS WILL NOT BE OPERATING ALONG SPADINA AND UNIVERSITY

Keep in mind that Museum IS NOT an accessible station and an accessible alternative to get to street level would be to disembark at St. George and take the elevator to street level if you are coming in from the west or if you are coming in from the east, to head to Bloor-Yonge and head to street level from there.

Also keep in mind that, even though May 22-24 is a long weekend, Museum station will be operating above-capacity as it was never designed to be a terminus (though the G-Series trains had a desitination sign that displayed MUSEUM) and as experienced in the past, with three times the number of subway trains coming into Museum station, a backlog can occur at the exit from the wye, causing a delay.
