Additional weekend event with road closures
  
An additional special event this weekend - the Scotiabank AIDS Walk for Life Toronto - will involve road closures. Earlier announced events are Word on the Street, the Harvest Festival and the Kensington Market Pedestrian Sunday. Residents and visitors are encouraged to come out and enjoy the events. Businesses in the affected areas are open to pedestrian traffic but some roads will be closed to motorists.

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. If you need to drive in event areas, allow extra time to get to and from your destination. A more complete list of events and road work is available at http://www.toronto.ca/torontostreets.

Church Street from Alexander Street to Carlton Street will be closed in both directions on Sunday, September 25 from 8 a.m. to 8 p.m. for this annual event.
