Why is this disruption necessary?

We’ll be doing a variety of maintenance, repair and cleaning work, but the major piece of work will be a switch replacement near City Hall Station. The switches are used by both CTrain lines, in both directions, every day of the year. After time they become worn and need to be replaced. We schedule major projects like this for long weekends because that’s when we have the lowest number of riders on the system.
