Road closures toronto

Labour Day weekend brings road closures in Toronto

Summer unofficially comes to an end this weekend in Toronto, but road closures do not. It's mercifully light weekend, but you'll still need to navigate carefully to avoid get stuck in traffic around a few key areas. Oh, and if you live on the east side and rely on the subway, it's going to be a rough one for you, unfortunately.

The big road closure this weekend comes on the holiday Monday, when the annual Labour Day Parade goes down from 7 a.m. to 2 p.m.. University Avenue will be closed between Queen Street West and Armoury Street, and Queen Street West will be off limits to cars between Dufferin Street and Exhibition Place.

Other events will cause lane restrictions but not outright closures. Fan Expo will close the curb lanes surrounding the Metro Convention Centre, while Buskerfest will close Coxwell Avenue's northbound curb lane between Eastern Avenue and Lake Shore Boulevard from 6 p.m. on Saturday to late Monday on Monday night.

As has been the case for the last month, watch out for roadwork on College between Havelock and Shaw streets, Queen Street between Spadina and Bathurst, Richmond between Church and York streets, and Shuter from Yonge to Sherbourne streets.

There will be no subway service between Pape and St. George stations on September 3, 4 and 5 as the City of Toronto does structural work on the Bloor Viaduct and the TTC continues its maintenance efforts on its track and signalling system.
