Toronto police are alerting the public about road restrictions and closures during Blue Jays home games at the Rogers Centres.
The Toronto Blue Jays will be returning to the Rogers Centre to continue with regular season scheduled home games on Friday, July 30, 2021.
To ensure the safe flow of pedestrian and vehicular traffic, a number of road restrictions and closures will be in effect for home games. There will be pre-game and post-game restrictions on the roadways surrounding the Rogers Centre. These restrictions will commence two hours prior to game time, and will remain in effect until the conclusion of the game.
The condominiums in the area, as well as the businesses, will have access during closures in an effort to alleviate any disruption to attending work or home. Residents and employees may have to provide proof of residency with identification or by speaking with the police officer at a traffic point.
Residents of the Navy Warf Court and Blue Jays Way areas can access this area from Spadina Avenue during these closures/restrictions.
Drop-off and pick-up for attendees will be directed to Front Street as there will be no staging of vehicles along Bremner Boulevard, Blue Jays Way and Navy Warf Court for post-game.
Accessibility Access for the Rogers Centre will be as follows:
- Gate 7: For those attending the Rogers Centre, Rees Street, northbound from Lake Shore Boulevard West will be used for accessibility vehicles and other mobility-accessible services. A staging area for those using accessibility services will be set up on Rees Street at Bremner Boulevard, for Gate 7 access.
- Gate 13: A similar area will be established on Blue Jays Way in front of the Marriott Hotel, for those entering through Gate 13.
Police, in partnership with the Rogers Centre, as well as the City of Toronto, are encouraging attendees and the wider public to plan ahead. Check for Traffic updates and Public Transit schedules and arrive early for security screening. Refer to www.mlb.com/bluejays/tickets/health-and-safety/rogers-centre for further details.
The public may also notice other enhanced security measures in the surrounding area, including an increased police presence and/or the use of other public and private sector resources, police said in a statement issued Thursday.
