1 Line | Overnight Rail Maintenance | 2/26 - 3/24

1 Line
Posted: Feb 22 - 7:01 p.m.

Beginning Sunday February 26, 1 Line tracks will be undergoing four weeks of rail grinding maintenance work. The rail grinding activity will take place overnight from 11:00 p.m. to 4:00 a.m., beginning at the Northgate Station and continuing south.

Passengers, businesses, and residents may experience noisy conditions during this process. Observers should expect to see localized sparks near the rail-grinding equipment. This is a normal part of the rail-grinding process, which is necessary to maintain rails in a safe state free of defects and degradation 

After 11:00 p.m., passengers may experience brief delays as trains single-track around the affected bore and track segment.

Single tracking may cause platforms closures at impacted stations. Please pay close attention while in station to ensure that you’re boarding your train in the right direction as the platform designated for boarding may be subject to change.

Updates will be provided as necessary.

Masks are recommended by public health authorities while on-board transit.
