Road closures for the August long weekend in Toronto

Road closures in Toronto for the Civic Holiday weekend of August 1, 2, and 3 2015 rounds up the key transportation shut-downs affecting the city, including street and TTC closures.


Lake Shore: Colborne Lodge--Strachan. To accommodate the annual Scotiabank Caribbean Carnival, a section of Lake Shore will be closed to auto traffic from Friday, July 31 at 11:59 p.m. to 5 a.m. on Sunday, August 2.


There are no subway or streetcar closures planned for this long weekend. The routes listed here will have more frequent service in order to serve the Toronto Caribbean Carnival Parade, VELD Music Festival at Downsview Park, and the Scarborough Ribfest in Thomson Park.

Over and above the special closures this weekend, construction projects across Toronto result in numerous other road restrictions across the city. For a comprehensive list of such closures, you can consult the official map maintained by the City of Toronto (also available as a PDF.)
