Major subway & street closures in Toronto this weekend

Street festivals return in force to complicate traffic in Toronto this weekend, a situation which will be exacerbated by a major subway closure as well. There's only a few weeks left before it'll feel like summer is over, so it's high time to ditch the car in favour of cycling or walking around town.

One week after the hyper popular Taste of Danforth, the eastern stretch of the street will be closed for the annual Wheels fest. Street closures will be in effect between Byng and Warden avenues and along Danforth Road between Danforth Avenue and Landry Avenue from 7 a.m. on Saturday to 1 a.m. on Sunday.

The new Feast of St. Lawrence festival will close down Front Street between Scott and Church streets from 11 a.m. on Friday until 2 a.m. on Sunday. Market Street will also be closed to vehicular traffic between 5 a.m. and 11:59 p.m. on Saturday.

The International Street Festival will close down Eglinton Avenue from Dufferin Street to Marlee Avenue from 2 a.m. on Saturday to 2 a.m. on Monday.

Making life a bit more difficult for those who rely on the Danforth Line, the TTC will be doing scheduled maintenance on Line 2 between St. George and Pape stations all weekend, but shuttle buses will be on the street in place of the subway along this stretch.

There are plenty of other closures across the city due to roadwork, which you can check up on using the official city of Toronto map.
