The long weekend is upon us, and with it comes some TTC and road closures.
The City of Toronto announced that it will be closing some downtown streets on Monday for the Walk for Israel.
Besides the upcoming road closures related to special events, a significant amount of road work is taking place in the city, so people are encouraged to take public transit as means to getting to their destinations.
Monday’s Walk with Israel will see a number of partial closures that will take place from 6 am to 3 pm on Monday, May 22. The roads affected will be in the area bounded by Strachan Avenue in the west, Lake Shore Boulevard in the south, York Street in the east and Wellington Street in the north.
Besides the event, the intersection at Dundas and Parliament will be closed until June 5 for TTC track replacement work as well as road and sidewalk repairs.
As well, a series of road closures at York Street are required to safely remove sections of the expressway ramp as part of the construction on the Gardiner.
From Friday, May 19 to Monday, May 22, the following closures will be in effect:
• York Street between Queens Quay and Harbour Street will be closed starting Friday, May 19 at 10 a.m. and extending to Monday, May 22 at 11 p.m.
• Eastbound Lake Shore Boulevard/Harbour Street, from Lower Simcoe Street to Bay Street (including the intersection at York Street and Harbour Street), will be closed starting Friday, May 19 at 1 p.m. and extending to Monday, May 22 at 11 p.m.

Plan ahead, yet again!
