Weekend event with road closure in Toronto
  
A special event on holiday Monday - Labour Day - will involve a road closure in Toronto. Residents and visitors are encouraged to come out and enjoy this downtown event.

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.

Brazilian Day - Monday road closure: Yonge Street from Dundas Street to Queen Street will be closed to vehicle traffic on Monday, September 3 from 10 a.m. to 11 p.m. for Brazilian Day festivities.

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 destination. A more complete list of events and road work is available at http://www.toronto.ca/torontostreets/.

The City recently introduced T.O. INview, a map that shows information about capital construction work taking place across the city. The website can be accessed at http://www.toronto.ca/inview.

Toronto is Canada's largest city and sixth largest government, and home to a diverse population of about 2.7 million people. Toronto's government is dedicated to delivering customer service excellence, creating a transparent and accountable government, reducing the size and cost of government and building a transportation city. For information on non-emergency City services and programs, Toronto residents, businesses and visitors can dial 311, 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.
