Weekend event with road closures in Toronto
  
A special event in Toronto this weekend – the Aga Khan World Partnership Walk – will involve partial road closures as described below. Residents and visitors are encouraged to come out and enjoy this event. Businesses in the areas affected are open to pedestrian traffic but some roads will be closed to vehicles.

Festivals and other special events are important to the city, injecting hundreds of millions of dollars annually into Toronto’s economy, and the events are enjoyed by local residents as well as visitors.

In addition to road closures related to special events, a significant amount of road work is taking place in the city. People are encouraged to take public transit as a greener, faster and more affordable way of getting to their destinations.

Those who need to drive in the general vicinity of special events should allow extra time to get to and from their destinations. A more complete list of events and road work is available at http://www.toronto.ca/roadrestrictions.

TTC customers can receive information about service diversions by subscribing to eAlerts at http://www.ttc.ca/ or by following @TTCnotices on Twitter.

Aga Khan World Partnership Walk – Sunday closure
A number of lane closures and partial road closures for the Aga Khan World Partnership Walk will occur from 9 a.m. to 2 p.m. on Sunday, May 28 to accommodate this event.

The roads affected are in the area bounded by John Street to the west, Wellington Street to the south, University Avenue to the east and Queen's Park Circle to the north. Notably, University Avenue will be closed in both directions from Wellington Street to Queen's Park Circle from 10 a.m. to 1:45 p.m. during the walk.

Toronto is Canada's largest city, the fourth largest in North America, and home to a diverse population of about 2.8 million people. It is a global centre for business, finance, arts and culture and is consistently ranked one of the world's most livable cities. In 2017, Toronto will honour Canada's 150th birthday with "TO Canada with Love," a year-long program of celebrations, commemorations and exhibitions.
