Canada Day celebrations with road closures in Toronto
  
Two special events on Canada Day will involve road closures. Residents and visitors are encouraged to come out and enjoy these July 1 events. Businesses in the affected areas will be open to pedestrian traffic but some roads, identified below, 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 the city 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.

• Queen’s Park - Queen’s Park Crescent from College Street to Charles Street will be closed from 6:30 a.m. to 7 p.m. on Thursday, July 1.
