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 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 Toronto this summer. 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.

Bloor West Village BIA Festival - Friday to Saturday closures:
A series of road closures involving local roads running off Bloor Street will take place to accommodate this event. These closures during the festival will affect Windermere Avenue, Armadale Avenue, Beresford Avenue, Kennedy Avenue and Glendonwynne Road.

Live Green Toronto Festival - Saturday closure:
Yonge Street from Edward Street - which is just north of Dundas Street - to Queen Street will be closed on Saturday, July 16 from 6:30 a.m. to 11:59 p.m.

Festival of South Asia - Saturday to Monday closure:

Toronto is Canada's largest city and sixth largest government, and home to a diverse population of about 2.6 million people.
