toronto road closures

Major city streets closed this weekend in Toronto

Good luck driving around Toronto this weekend. There are lots of road closures to report, but luckily, the subway will be up and running (except for Line 1 between Downsview and Wilson).

Thanks to TIFF's annual Festival Street, King is closed between University and Spadina. It'll reopen on Monday at 5 a.m. It's a pleasure to walk down a car-free King Street, but if you rely on the 504 to get to-and-fro, check out the streetcar's alternate route. And remember, there will be no service between York and Charlotte.

On the east side of the city, Parliament will be closed from Gerrard to Wellesley for the Cabbagetown Festival. Carlton, between Parliament and Berkeley, will also shut down from 6 a.m. on Saturday until 9 p.m. on Sunday for this annual event.

As for other street fests, Taste of the Kingsway is shutting down Bloor between Prince Edward Drive and Montgomery Road from noon today until 11 p.m. on Sunday.

There are two major runs happening in Toronto this weekend. For the 5K Run for Sick Kids Hospital Foundation, road closures start at 7:30 a.m. and will impact the area around St. Clair Avenue West and West Hills Road. You can find the entire route here.

The luxurious Bang & Olufsen Yorkville Run happens every year during TIFF. It's on Sunday and will close down streets between Davenport and Dundas from 8 a.m. until noon.

And on Saturday, Queen's Park Crescent East between College and Bloor will be closed on Saturday between 6 a.m. to 6 p.m. for the Jesus in the City Parade.
