Major TTC and road closures this weekend in Toronto

As summer begins to wind down in Toronto, festival and event-related road closures are still a fixture each weekend. Alas, so too are scheduled TTC subway closures. Both are in store this weekend, though Saturday is the far worse of the two days.

Bloor Street will be closed between Dufferin Street and Montrose Avenue on Saturday from 10 a.m. to just after 10 p.m. for the Bloorcourt Arts & Crafts Fair.

Toronto's newest beer festival closes Dundas Street East from 1-8 p.m. on Saturday between Logan and Carlaw as the Leslieville Beer Fest goes down.

It's the last weekend of the month, which means it's a Pedestrian Sunday in Kensington Market. The entire area will be closed to vehicular traffic from noon until 7 p.m. on the August 28th.

In addition to these closures, there are major events happening at the Harbourfront Centre, Yonge-Dundas Square, CityPlace, and the CNE, all of which will bring plenty of traffic (vehicular and otherwise) to their respective areas.

Yonge Street north of Bloor is going to be congested this weekend as the TTC shuts down Line 1 between Bloor-Yonge and Lawrence stations for scheduled maintenance. Shuttle buses will run along the duration of the route.
