The Invictus Games will take place September 23 to 30. In order to provide a safe and secure environment for those attending the games, as well as those who live and work in the city, various road closures will be in effect in accordance to the Toronto Police Service's security plan.
Overviews of these measures will be issued each morning and will be available on the Toronto Police Service’s website.

In addition to these road closures, this weekend will have a TTC subway closure. There will be no subway service between Kipling and Islington stations on September 23 and 24 due to track work.
It's also important to note that trains on Line 1 will be bypassing Dundas Station both ways starting at 11 p.m. each evening until late October due to fare gate construction.
