And just like that, summer is over.

As we move into the first week of September, the usual construction sites continue to roadblock city drivers. Fortunately, most Torontonians will be heading out of the city for the long weekend. Those staying in the 6ix need only worry about a handful of event-related closures, which will shut down areas in and around the CNE and University Ave.

Read on for a few more spots you’ll want to avoid this weekend in Toronto…
