Road and subway closures this weekend in Toronto

Road closures in Toronto this weekend are highlighted by Taste of the Danforth, which will shut the eponymous street down for the entire weekend. Fortunately for drivers, it's the only major festival that will disrupt traffic. Alas, there is, however, a subway closure to navigate around as well as some ongoing road work that'll cause headaches.

Unless you're heading to the festival, avoid the Danforth this weekend. The street will be closed between Broadview and Jones avenues from 11 a.m. on Friday until 1 a.m. on Monday. Intersections within 30 metres north and south of the street will also be blocked.

Major roadwork to be aware of includes the closure of Lansdowne and Dundas for TTC track work, Jarvis and Gerrard streets for water main replacement, and Bayview Avenue north of Rosedale Valley Road, which is reduced to one lane until the fall.

The University section of Line 1 will be closed on August 6 between St. George and Union for scheduled maintenance. Shuttle buses will operate, though your best bet is to use the Yonge Line and walk west if you're able to.
