Temporary traffic stoppages for D-Day events
  
Closure at Bloor Street West on weekend

A number of roads will be affected by D-Day anniversary celebrations on Sunday,
June 6. For the most part, these involve temporary lane restrictions only.

Three significant Marches of Remembrance involving 1,000 participants each are
planned for the day along these routes:

· The first parade begins at Sunnybrook Hospital at 2 p.m. Soldiers will march
south on Bayview Avenue to Eglinton Avenue, then proceed west along Eglinton
Avenue to Yonge Street, south on Yonge Street to Bloor Street, west on Bloor
Street to Queen's Park/Avenue Road, then south along Queen's Park Crescent East
to the Provincial Legislature for the commemorative ceremony that begins at 4
p.m.

· The second parade begins at Ramsden Park at 2:30 p.m. Cadets will proceed
south on Yonge Street to Bloor Street, west on Bloor Street to Queen's
Park/Avenue Road and then south along Queen's Park Crescent West to the
Provincial Legislature for the ceremony.

· The third parade departs Toronto City Hall at 3 p.m. Participants will march
north on University Avenue from the Courthouse (north of Queen Street) to the
Provincial Legislature for the ceremony.

In all cases, once the participants have left the area, the roads will be fully
re-opened.

From 2:30 p.m. - 6:30 p.m., Queen's Park Crescent East will be closed from
College Street to the south side of Wellesley, and Queen's Park Crescent West
will be closed from the south side of Hoskin Avenue to College Street. For more

Elsewhere, Bloor Street West will be closed from Spadina Avenue to Bathurst
Street from 8 a.m. to 8 p.m. for a street festival.
