Toronto Road Closures

Brace yourselves, this weekend’s road closures are going to be pretty messy. With marathon season in full swing, multiple roads will be closed across the city on Saturday and Sunday. Sunday, in particular, will be rough with both the Toronto and Mississauga marathons shutting down multiple intersections.

During marathon closures, traffic will be blocked on all cross streets for vehicles and pedestrians, except where a bridge or tunnel exists over or under the road.

This might just be one of the most complicated Toronto road closures we’ve ever encountered. But don’t worry. We’ll get through it together.

Read on for all the details…
