Major road and TTC closures in Toronto this weekend

Road closures continue to hit Toronto streets as holiday festivities ramp up in the city. Last week it was the Santa Claus Parade, and this week it's the Cavalcade of Lights that'll cause congestion on downtown streets. There's also a scheduled TTC closure on Line 3.

Queen Street West from University Avenue to Bay Street will be closed on Saturday, November 26 from 4 p.m. to 11:30 p.m. for the annual Cavalcade of Lights and Christmas Tree lighting. In addition, a number of smaller local roads in the area including Hagerman Street and Elizabeth Street will be closed to accommodate this event.

If you're parking at city hall, it'd be wise to use the entrance on Chestnut Street south of Dundas Street West, which is also where scheduled WheelTrans pickups and drop-offs will take place.

The eastbound and westbound lanes of Bremner Boulevard will be occupied from Rees Street to Lower Simcoe on November 25 and 26 for a street festival related to the 104th Grey Cup from 7 a.m. to 11 p.m. each day.

Watch out for bridge work and road repairs on Bloor St. between Sherbourne and Castle Frank Crescent this weekend from 9:30 a.m. to 3:30 p.m. One lane will be closed in either direction during this time.

As far as the TTC goes, all of Line 3 will be closed on Saturday, November 26. Shuttle buses will run in place of the SRT.
