On Saturday, August 13 and Sunday, August 14, 2011, the Yonge Subway will be closed between Bloor-Yonge Station and Eglinton Station in order to begin installation of a new double cross-over section of track just south of St. Clair Station. When completed, subway trains will be able to be turned back at St. Clair Station. Regular subway service between these stations will resume on the morning of Monday, August 15. Two additional weekend closures will be required to complete this work; tentatively scheduled for September 17-18 and October 29-30.
