As is customary at this time of year, Toronto traffic will be subject to numerous road closures this weekend.
In addition to the significant amount of road work taking place across the city–they do say Toronto only has two seasons: winter and construction–there are also two big events that will shut down city streets this Saturday and Sunday in Toronto.
Weekend event road closures happening this weekend include:
University of Toronto Science Rendezvous
The massive science fair will close St. George Street to traffic in both directions from College Street to Harbord Street from 6 am to 6 pm on Saturday.
Sporting Life 10k Run
Yonge Street between Lawrence Avenue and Eglinton Avenue to be closed 4:30 am to 10:30 am on Sunday. Closures will occur along the route between 7:30 am and 11:30 am at the following locations:
Expect delays on Lake Shore Boulevard at Fort York Boulevard as runners enter Coronation Park. Intersections will reopen to traffic after all the runners pass. All roads are expected to be reopened by 12:30 pm.
Compounding the traffic woes further still: Don’t forget that the TTC will also close part of Line 2 for track work this Saturday.
