Well, we had a taste of Toronto road closures down by the Lakeshore last weekend. Now they’re back with a vengeance.
Toronto will feel the full traffic impact of the Honda Indy. So expect significant delays.
We strongly recommend you steer clear of the Lakeshore, Gardiner, and Exhibition area this weekend. If you’re attending the Honda Indy, we suggest you use the TTC.
And any plans to take the GO Train should be double-checked, as there will be significant service delays.
The other road closures to note will be along the Allen — a route which gives drivers serious headaches even without closures.
Otherwise, there’s still ongoing construction around Bayview and Jarvis. And there are still those weekend TTC closures on Line 1.
