Weekend closure of Allen Road set for this weekend
The Transportation Services Division will be performing road resurfacing work on Allen Road this weekend. In order to undertake this work safely, a full closure of the roadway will be required.

Northbound and southbound Allen Road, from Transit Road to Eglinton Avenue, will be closed from Friday, August 14 at 10 p.m. to Monday, August 17 at 6 a.m.

Motorists can use Dufferin Street, Bathurst Street and Keele Street as alternative routes during this closure. Whenever possible, the public is encouraged to consider using public transit as a greener, faster and more convenient alternative.
