If you’re getting around the city this weekend, there are a number of major road closures and transit disruptions that you need to know about. Here’s a list:
Line 1 will be shut down both ways between Sheppard West (formerly Dowsnview) and St. George stations for signal upgrades. Shuttle buses will operate between Sheppard West and Lawrence West stations during the closure. The TTC is advising people to use east-west surface bus routes to access the Yonge section of line 1 south of Lawrence Avenue.
The city says there is a significant amount of construction work that could affect traffic this weekend across the city.
