Weekend events with road closures in Toronto
Three special events this coming weekend will involve road closures. Residents and visitors are encouraged to come out and enjoy the events. Businesses in the areas affected will be 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, 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. If you need to drive in event areas, allow extra time to get to and from your destination. More details about events and road work are available at
