On July 15/16, Line 2 will be closed between Jane and Ossington stations for scheduled maintenance work. A shuttle bus will operate on Bloor Street between the two stations. This particular closure is the only one scheduled for Line 2 this year. For a complete schedule, please see: http://www.ttc.ca/Service_Advisories/Subway_closures/index.jsp.
To effectively and safely move our thousands of customers and to keep roads moving generally for all, the TTC is planning parking restrictions on Bloor Street between Jane and Ossington from approximately Saturday 3:30 a.m. to Monday 12:01 a.m. In Ward 14 in particular, the parking restrictions would be from Keele to Dundas West. TTC recognizes the importance of on-street parking for BIAs/businesses, but temporarily restricting parking is vital to provide transit reliability during this closure. See attached image for clarification.
Preliminary/essential track related work between Keele and Dundas West stations is required in advance of an upcoming subway weekend closure on Line 2 between Keele and Ossington (July 15/16).
On the weekend of July 15/16 subway service will be suspended on Line 2 between Keele and Ossington stations in order to carry out a variety of work. This will include rail and wood-tie replacement in the open-air section between Keele and Dundas West stations.
Prior to the subway weekend closure some preparation work is required – starting June 28
To ensure that the rail and wood-tie replacement work can be completed during the scheduled weekend closure, preliminary work is required. Starting June 28 after regular subway service ends, track crews will begin removing ballast/stones along a section of track between Keele and Dundas West stations. This activity will occur nightly leading up to the weekend closure.
A notice will be issued in this same area prior to the July 15/16 weekend.Preliminary night work - Keele to Dundas West - Line 2 closure
