Three major events will close off road traffic in the downtown core and toward the east end, and continued resurfacing and repair of roads — part of the $155 million worth of construction taking place on more than 100 kilometres of road this summer — will contribute to heavy traffic.
The Beaches Jazz Festival will close Queen Street East from Woodbine Avenue to Beech Avenue from 6 p.m. to midnight on Thursday, Friday and Saturday.
The Live Green Toronto Festival will close a stretch of Yonge Street, between Edward Street and Queen Street, on Saturday from 6:30 a.m. to midnight.
The Multicultural Exploration of Canada festival will see the Ashtonbee Road, from Warden Avenue to Thermos Road, closed from Saturday at 6 a.m. to Sunday at midnight.
