Today started out with the sad news that a TTC employee was killed on the job inside the subway tunnel. The whole story isn't in yet.
This led to the closure of the Yonge subway for a few stops. Interestingly, the city closed Yonge Street to car traffic south of Lawrence to keep it clear for the bus shuttles. I went to the intersection of Yonge and Lawrence to see what this would look like. I even had my camera with me, but I was surprised to see things in general order, and traffic not really backed up. I didn't bother taking a picture.
The shuttle buses were packed, and were leaving from York Mills. When I arrived there, I could see more evidence of the strange situation.
There was a steady flow of people and more than enough to fill the shuttle buses.
After passing York Mills, everything seemed to be relatively normal.
Then came the afternoon commute.
