Weekend events with road closures in Toronto
One event, a film shoot and three construction-related projects this weekend will involve local road closures as described below. Residents and visitors are encouraged to come out and enjoy the event. Businesses in the local areas will be 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 of getting to their destinations. TTC customers can subscribe to eAlerts at or follow @TTCnotices on Twitter to receive information about service diversions.

Those who need to drive in the general vicinity of special events should allow extra time to get to and from their destinations. A more complete list of events and road work is available at

Information about road closures related to parades and special events that are overseen by the Toronto Police Service is available at
