Weekend event with road closures in Toronto
  
An annual community festival this weekend in addition to the Honda Indy event will involve road closures in Toronto as described below. Residents and visitors are encouraged to come out and enjoy both events. 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 they are enjoyed each year by local residents.

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 following @TTCnotices on Twitter.

Bloor West Village BIA Festival
Bloor Street between Armadale Avenue and Runnymede Road will be closed in both directions on Saturday, July 15 from 6 a.m. to midnight for the Bloor West Village BIA Festival. Other roads that will be affected by partial closures during that period include Willard Avenue, Windermere Avenue, Durie Street and Beresford Avenue. Access to Green P parking facilities in the area will be maintained.

Details about road closures for the Honda Indy were provided in a news release the City of Toronto issued on July 11, available at http://ow.ly/kOVU30dBPsi.
