Parts of the TTC subway will close for at least a weekend, starting in March and occurring every single month until the end of the year.

The scheduled closures are to keep the subway in state of good repair, the Toronto Transit Commission said on its website.

The closures will affect Line 1 (Yonge-University-Spadina), Line 2 (Bloor-Danforth), and Line 3 (Scarborough RT).

The work is being done in one solid chunk so as to not to disturb the work week. One weekend of work during a subway closure equals about five weeks of nightly work, according to the TTC.
