Upcoming events with road closures in Toronto
  
Two events in the city of Toronto will involve some local road closures this week. Residents and visitors are encouraged to come out and enjoy the events. Businesses in the area are open to pedestrian traffic but some roads will be closed to vehicles.

Festivals and other special events are important to the city, injecting hundreds of millions of dollars annually into Toronto’s economy. They are enjoyed each year by local residents and visitors.

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 to get to their destination.

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/roadrestrictions. To receive information about service diversions, TTC customers can subscribe to eAlerts at http://www.ttc.ca or follow @TTCnotices on Twitter.

Information about road closures related to parades and special events that are overseen by the Toronto Police Service is available at http://www.torontopolice.on.ca/specialevents/.
