Road closures for the Honda Indy will begin on Wednesday, July 10 at 12 pm, and southbound on Strachan Avenue will be closed from Fleet Street to Lake Shore Boulevard West.

At 8 pm, Lake Shore Boulevard West will be closed from Strachan Avenue to British Columbia Drive.

These roads will remain closed all weekend and are scheduled to be reopened on Sunday, July 14 at 11 pm.

Due to the extensive road closures, motorists can expect significant delays in the area and are strongly encouraged to plan alternate routes.

The Toronto police say anyone attending the Honda Indy should take public transit, and both the TTC and GO Transit will provide increased service to Exhibition Place.

Police are also reminding the public that operating Unmanned Air Vehicles (UAV / “drones”) in and around the premise of Exhibition Place during Honda Indy race weekend is strictly prohibited.

Anyone found operating a UAV in the area will be in direct violation of restricted airspace and will be subject to investigation and/or prosecution.
