Toronto Road Closures To Watch For This Weekend (June 15 To 17)

road closures

Toronto road closures are fast and furious this summer, so we want to help make your potentially slow drive less furious.

This is normal, of course, during the season of walks, marathons and festivals. They wreak havoc on road closures and the transit system with detours and slowdowns.

We’ve categorized road closures according to festivals for you. So the bright side of all these closures is they may also open your mind to the possibility of fun new things to try.

Of note, areas to be specifically concerned about are Lakeshore West and around Queen’s Park.
