Road Closure Toronto

There's major road closures in Toronto this weekend

Road closures will be happening all across Toronto this weekend on account of events like Nuit Blanche and Pedestrian Sundays. On the bright side, at least there's no TTC subway closure.

Here's what you need to know to get around the city by car this weekend.
