Weekend event with road closures in Toronto
There will be road closures for the 2013 Khalsa Day parade in the west part of the city on Sunday, May 5 in addition to the previously announced road closures for the GoodLife Fitness Toronto Marathon in central Toronto.

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, there is a significant amount of road work 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 destination. A more complete list of events and road work is available at
