Roads remain closed on Tuesday morning as police continue to investigate the deadly van attack that left 10 dead and 15 injured along Yonge Street in North York yesterday.
The City of Toronto has issued a traffic advisory via Twitter that all lanes remain blocked on Yonge Street between Sheppard Avenue and Bishop Avenue, while Toronto Police Operations advise that the area is closed to pedestrians and vehicular traffic along Yonge as well as Beecroft Road from Finch Avenue to North York Boulevard.
While subway service is operating from Finch Station, trains are bypassing North York Centre as the station remains closed and the 97 Yonge bus is diverting according to a tweet from TTC’s Brad Ross.
