Two special events in Toronto this weekend will involve road closures. The City has asked residents and visitors d to come out and enjoy the events. Businesses in the areas affected are open to pedestrian traffic but some roads will be closed to vehicles, an official statement said.
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, 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.
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 http://www.toronto.ca/
