Road Closure Toronto

Memorials and runs to close down Toronto roads this weekend

Major road closures in Toronto this weekend go beyond closures for Nuit Blanche. Sunday will see a memorial and a run close down Toronto roads. Luckily, there's no TTC subway closures so it's best to take public transit if you plan to make your way downtown.

However, if you do plan on driving around Toronto this weekend, here's what you need to know.
