What Work is Taking Place?

In September 2019, crews will conduct a series of closures of Berwick Avenue between Duplex Avenue and Yonge Street to perform supporting construction activities for TTC’s Line 1 Subway Facility Services Building. Due to the location of the new building, the work can only be carried out safely while the subway is not in operation. Please see below the schedules of road closure and subway closure in September.

Please note that this work is subject to cancellation. If cancelled, the road closure will not be required, and affected properties will be notified. TTC closures may go ahead even in the even of the road closure cancellation. Please visit TTC’s website under “Scheduled Subway Closures” for update-to-date service information.
