What Work is Taking Place?

Beginning May 19, 2018 work will get underway building the foundation and housing for the Facility Services Building for the TTC Line 1 Subway system. Crews will also undertake various activities inside the TTC station.

The future Facility Services Building will house an upgraded ventilation system and will be located on the TTC Line 1 corridor (Yonge-University), south of Berwick Avenue. The new ventilation system will include smoke extraction for emergency situations at Eglinton Station. Fans will be equipped with acoustic dampers to reduce noise, and, outside of emergency situations, will only run for testing purposes.

For details of this phase of work, please refer to the presentation materials from the public meeting held on May 7.



  • Due to the location of the new building, the work can only be carried out safely while the subway is not in operation. There will be a series of weekend subway closures throughout the entire year. 
  • Please note that this will be no different from other TTC train closures. As such, service continues until the last train on Friday nights. Regular service resumes on Monday mornings (see Transit Information below). 
  • Below are the upcoming weekend subway closures for spring/summer 2018:

◦ May 19, 20, 26 and 27 (between Lawrence and St. Clair) - CANCELLED

◦ June 2 and 3 (between Sheppard-Yonge and St. Clair) - CANCELLED

◦ June 16 and 17 (between Sheppard-Yonge and St. Clair) - CANCELLED

◦ June 30 and July 1 (between Lawrence and St. Clair)

  • Additional weekend subway closures are anticipated throughout 2018. Please see below:

◦ July 7 and 8, 14 and 15, 21 and 22

◦ August 11 and 12, 18 and 19

◦ September 1 and 2, 8 and 9, 22 and 23

◦ October 13 and 14, 20 and 21. 27 and 28

◦ November 3 and 4, 24 and 25

◦ December 8 and 9, 15 and 16

  • This will allow for construction activities for the TTC Line 1 Subway system and to facilitate required work inside the station for the Eglinton Crosstown LRT Project.
  • Construction activities will begin on each Friday before these weekends, and will continue during regular working hours (7:00 a.m. - 11:00 p.m.) and overnight (11:00 p.m. - 7:00 a.m.) until the subway re-opens the following Monday morning.


Transit Information

There will be no subway service at TTC Eglinton Station. Access to TTC Eglinton Station Bus Terminal will be maintained, allowing TTC users to access shuttle buses for the duration of the closure. Please visit the TTC website for more details under Scheduled Subway Closures on subway closures and shuttle bus operation. Click here to view Eglinton Station hours.

Relocation and re-routing of bus stops is done in consultation with TTC to ensure construction can continue safely while minimizing impact on the community and customers. Please watch for posted notices indicating new information.

Travel delays are expected with the Crosstown construction. Please allow extra time for your journey. Traffic will be extra heavy at peak periods during the Crosstown construction. When possible, please travel during the off-peak period between 10:00 a.m. and 3:00 p.m.
