This weekend, one special event – the Scotiabank Toronto Waterfront Marathon – will involve road closures. Residents and visitors are encouraged to come out and enjoy this event. Businesses in the affected areas are open to pedestrian traffic but some roads will be closed to vehicles. 

Festivals and other special events are important to the city, injecting hundreds of millions of dollars annually into Toronto’s economy, and they are enjoyed each year by local residents and visitors. 

In addition to road closures related to special events, there is a significant amount of road work taking place in the city. People are encouraged to take public transit as a greener, faster and more affordable way of getting to their destinations. 

Those who need to drive in the general vicinity of special events should allow extra time to get to and from their destinations. A more complete list of events and road work is available at
