Sheppard West to Lawrence West


The TTC is closing its Line 1 (Yonge - University) subway between Sheppard West and Lawrence West stations this Saturday, September 9 and Sunday, September 10.

While this part of the line is closed, TTC crews carry out essential track work in several locations on the closed section of the line.

This is the tenth of 14 weekend closures affecting this part of Line 1 this year, mostly resulting from TTC crews installing and testing its automatic train control system (ATC). The TTC previously closed this section of the line:
