No subway service, St. Andrew to Union,
this weekend, September 20, 21



St Andrew to Union.jpg

Although the TTC recently opened a second platform at Union subway station, work still continues on the project.

Ongoing work requires it to completely close the 1 Yonge - University - Spadina subway line between Union and St. Andrew Stations this weekend.

All day Saturday, September 20 and Sunday, September 21, subway trains operate between Downsview and St. Andrew Stations and between Finch and Union Stations.

Since you can’t travel by subway between Union and St. Andrew Stations, the TTC advises you to to exit the University - Spadina leg of the subway further north than St. Andrew to avoid crowds. If you are traveling as far south as Union, transfer at Queen’s Park, St. Patrick or Osgoode Stations to eastbound streetcars operating along the 506 Carlton, 505 Dundas or 501 Queen routes, then transfer again at College, Dundas or Queen Stations to the Yonge leg of the subway.

Of course, streetcars operating along the 504 King route continue to connect St. Andrew with King Station.

You can also transfer from streetcars operating along any of those routes to buses operating along the 6 Bay route to travel to Union.

If you’re paying by cash or ticket, make sure you get a paper transfer where you pay your fare to show the streetcar or bus driver when you board.

Regular subway service resumes Monday, September 22.

For passengers who require accessible transit between Union and St Andrew stations, an accessible Wheel-Trans vehicle will be available. Ask any uniformed TTC employee at either station for directions on where you can board Wheel-Trans.


While closing the subway is a short-term inconvenience to passengers, the result of the project will be better service for the thousands of passengers that board or exit from the subway Toronto’s major transit hub at Union Station. (Many of you also connect with GO Transit trains and buses at Union.)

This is the latest in this series of weekend closures to disrupt service in the same stretch of the 1 Yonge - University - Spadina subway as the TTC worked towards opening the second platform and finalizing the project. This year, it’s already closed this part of the line Saturday, January 11 and Sunday, January 12, Saturday, January 25 and Sunday, January 26, Saturday, February 8 and Sunday, February 9 and Saturday, February 22 and Sunday, February 23. More recently, it closed this section of the line Saturday, August 16 and Sunday, August 17, just before opening the new platform and just last weekend, Saturday, September 13 and Sunday, September 14.

During earlier parts of the project, it also previously closed the subway between St. Andrew and Union Saturday, September 8 and Sunday, September 9, Saturday, November 10 and Sunday, November 11, Saturday, December 8 and Sunday, December 9, 2012, Saturday, January 26 and Sunday, January 27, Saturday, November 23 and Sunday, November 23 and Saturday, December 7 and Sunday, December 8, 2013.




Rapidway on Highway 7 West:
More construction starts September 15



Metrolinx and York Region contractors continue getting ready to build a rapidway — bus-only lanes in the centre of the roadway — along Highway 7 West from west of Jane Street to east of Keele Street.


Over the summer, crews have been busy widening the road between Jane Street and the Canadian National Railway bridge west of Keele Street and relocating underground infrastructure, including sewer, hydro and telecommunications between east of the CN Bridge and Bowes Road / Baldwin Avenue.

As they continue widening the road to complete as much road construction as possible before winter, they’ll close roads and shift traffic lanes to accommodate construction activities.

Starting Monday, September 15, Mondays to Fridays from 7 a.m. until 7 p.m., are undertaking a number of parts of the overall projects. (Some lane closures continue overnight and weekends.)

Highway 7 West rapidway - starting Sept-15 - 14.jpg

A. Hillside Avenue — extending a culvert and building a retaining wall.

  • To start widening the road on the north side of Highway 7, crews will extend the Hillside culvert east of Keele Street and build a new retaining wall to increase stability between two areas of land at different heights.
  • Contractors will temporarily block the westbound curb lane just east of Keele Street 24 hours a day. They’ll also reduce the right-turn lanes on Highway 7 at Keele Street.
  • They may also close sidewalks in this area. Directional signs will direct pedestrians safely around the construction zone.
  • This work continues until September 25.

B. Hillside Avenue — closing the street

  • Due to the size of the work area and the necessary equipment required to relocate underground storm sewers, contractors will block access to Hillside Avenue at Highway 7 24 hours a day for seven continuous days between Monday, September 22 and Wednesday, October 15.
  • While the street is closed, crews will maintain access to Hillside from Baldwin Avenue. Pedestrian and traffic detour signs will be in place throughout the residential neighbourhood and on Highway 7.

C. Highway 7 — shifting and reducing traffic lanes between the CN Bridge (west of Keele Street) and the GO Transit bridge (east of Keele).

  • To continue installing storm sewers on the south side of Highway 7 and start widening the road widening and installing sewers on the north side, crews will shift eastbound traffic reduce it to just tow lanes between the bridges. They’ll continue reducing westbound traffic to just two lanes between Keele and Jane Streets.
  • East of Bowes Road, they’ll temporarily shift westbound traffic to the north side of the road and reduce it to just two lanes so they can complete necessary underground work in the centre of the road.
  • Before crews shift the traffic lanes, expect temporary overnight lane closures on Highway 7 from Tuesday, September 23 until Thursday, September 25 as they paint lines on the road to indicate the new traffic lanes.
  • In some areas east of Keele Street, they’ll reduce right- and left-turn access. Traffic control staff and “paid-duty” York Regional Police officers will be on site during the work.

The work will reduce access to driveways, sidewalks and bus stops in some areas. Motorists and transit passengers should also expect delays due to temporary lane restrictions. Expect noise.


During Highway 7 West rapidway construction, expect delays for:

  • Brampton Transit Züm express buses operating along the 501 Züm Queen route;
  • TTC buses operating along the 35D Jane and 107 Keele North routes; and
  • York Region Transit Viva express buses operating along the Viva orange route and YRT local buses operating along the 20 Jane and 77 Highway 7 routes.

Eglinton Crosstown LRT -- Brentcliffe:
Construction reduces lanes overnight



eglinton crosstown logo.pngMetrolinx contractors are working to build the future Eglinton - Scarborough Crosstown light rail transit line.

Crews continue to work on Eglinton Avenue East east of Brentcliffe Road to build a deep shaft, where, eventually, they’ll launch the east-end tunnel-boring machines. The site will remain a construction zone for several years through various stages of the project. The two tunnel-boring machines will work their way westward from the launch shaft towards Yonge Street.

The site will remain a construction zone for many years through various stages of the project. Walls of the launch shaft must be in place and crews must dig out the shaft before tunnel-boring machines can arrive. But, before they can do that, they have to move utilities safely out of the way and relocate overhead hydro wires.

Starting 11 p.m. Wednesday, September 17 until 6 a.m. Thursday, September 18 and continuing overnight nightly for about two to three weeks, crews will block one lane at a time between Leslie Street and Brentcliffe Road to continue relocating utilities.

They’ll set up a work zone on the north lane of Eglinton Avenue East, beside the east Eglinton Crosstown launch site. Traffic cones will separate the work zone separated from the right-of-way.

East- and westbound traffic will alternately use the one lane. Paid Duty Officers (PDOs) will be employed to control the flow of traffic. Expect delays resulting from this work as you travel through the area.

To allow westbound traffic to continue, the paid-duty Toronto Police Services officers will temporarily stop eastbound Eglinton traffic and divert westbound traffic to the eastbound lane around the work zone.

Alternately, to allow eastbound traffic to continue, the officers will temporarily stop westbound traffic and divert eastbound traffic to proceed on the eastbound Eglinton lane.

Construction likely continues until 6 a.m. October 3.

Traffic patterns in the area will continue to change and shift during different phases of the work. Expect traffic delays are expected during construction.

The City of Toronto has amended its noise by-law to permit work on this phase of the project to continue from 11 p.m. until 6 a.m., seven days a week. Underground tunneling and related work may continue 24 hours a day, seven days a week.


During construction at the east launch shaft — on Eglinton Avenue East between Leslie Street and Brentcliffe Road — TTC passengers should expect delays for buses operating along these routes:

  • 34 Eglinton East;
  • 51 Leslie;
  • 54 Lawrence East;
  • 100 Flemingdon Park;
  • 305 Eglinton East overnight; and
  • 354 Lawrence East overnight.

Greater Toronto area media report on public transit issues today.




Eglinton Crosstown LRT -- Duplex Avenue
Headwall construction continues



eglinton crosstown logo.pngMetrolinx contractors for the Eglinton Crosstown light rail transit line continue building the headwalls west of Yonge Street.

Headwalls are underground support walls at the ends of each station site. The headwalls must be in place before tunnel-boring machines arrive at each station location.

Crews are building one headwall on Eglinton Avenue West east of Duplex Avenue at the shaft where, eventually, they’ll extract the tunneling machines. Building this headwall requires a nearby plant to pump “grout”, a form of concrete, to the headwall site. They’ve built the grout plant on a section of Duplex Avenue, south of Eglinton West.

During this phase, contractors work in the north lanes of Eglinton east of Duplex. The north-side construction zone extends along Eglinton Avenue West between east of Colin Avenue and just west of Yonge Street. During the work, the City of Toronto is prohibiting most vehicles, except for TTC buses, from turning left from westbound Eglinton onto southbound Duplex.

map_yonge_headwall_stage_north_switch_0.jpg

Traffic cones, concrete barriers and fencing separate the work zone from the right-of-way. Various traffic control measures and construction zones occupy the intersection of Eglinton West with Duplex Avenue and will change and shift over the coming months during headwall construction.

Expect traffic delays during construction.

For the safety of transit riders, the TTC is relocating east- and westbound bus stops in the area. Watch for posted signs and future information directing you to the new locations.

Pedestrian walkways will remain open; however detours may be in place. A chain-link fence will separate pedestrians from construction.

Most of the work occurs between 7 a.m. and 11 p.m., seven days a week. Some late-night or early-morning work may take place so that contractors can complete the work as quickly as possible. The contractor will not always work during the longer hours, but may do so if necessary.

Expect noise and vibration.


During Eglinton Crosstown construction at Duplex Avenue, expect delays for these TTC routes:

  • 5 Avenue Rd;
  • 32 Eglinton West;
  • 34 Eglinton East;
  • 51 Leslie;
  • 54 Lawrence East;
  • 56 Leaside;
  • 61 Avenue Rd North; and
  • 100 Flemingdon Park.
