Road closures in Toronto: July 4-5 2015

Road closures in Toronto for the weekend of July 4-5 rounds up the key transportation shut-downs affecting the city, including street and TTC closures.


Taste of Lawrence
Lawrence Ave. E. will be closed between Warden and Birchmount from Friday at 10am until Sunday at 11:59pm for Taste of Lawrence.

Salsa on St. Clair
St. Clair West will be closed between Winona Dr. and Christie St. from Saturday at 8:00am until Sunday at 11:59am. TTC buses will divert via Davenport Rd.

Pan Am Torch Relay
This one is a doozy, so be prepared. The torch relay begins in St. James Town and then heads east over the weekend. Only a single lane of traffic will be closed in most cases, but if you're looking to get somewhere quick, it's best to avoid the celebration altogether.
