Toronto Road Closures And Traffic For Thanksgiving Long Weekend: Dufferin, LRT, Dundas West

toronto road closures

Toronto road closures may look quiet as we head into the Thanksgiving long weekend, but there will still be challenges in you getting to your turkey and stuffing.

Look at it this way: If you walk instead of drive you may be able to eat way more turkey and stuffing. Then again. All that turkey and stuffing may be gone by the time you get there. Well, that settles it! You’re driving.

All right. Here we go …

The biggest culprit to drivers this weekend will be construction, specifically around the LRT, Dundas West, and Main Street.

Another doozie: Dufferin. While Dufferin will face lane closures and not road closures, any driver along that strip will face a lot of time sitting in traffic. So be prepared.
