The weekend weather forecast for Toronto is looking BEAUTIFUL. But if you have plans for this weekend in the city (which we hope you do), you might want to give yourself plenty of time to get there.
Because 34 roads will be closed this weekend for the Scotiabank Toronto Waterfront Marathon taking place this Sunday. In preparation for the race, many roads will begin shutting down on Saturday, likely affecting your travel plans.
Last year's race drew huge crowds, and nearly 26,000 participants from around the world, so expect the weekend to be pretty busy overall. Runners will be racing through many of the city's busiest streets, Lake Shore Boulevard, Queens Quay, University Avenue, and Queen Street.
And to make it an even more hectic commute this weekend, the TTC announced that a portion of Line 1 (Yonge-University-Spadina) and Queen Station will also be closed. And on the same line, Sheppard West and St. George stations will not have subways running all weekend (due to signal upgrades) BUT shuttle buses will be running between Sheppard and Lawrence West stations.
Finally, Queen Station will also be closed from 11 P.M. on Friday to 6 A.M. on Monday, due to construction and not the marathon.
For a complete list of all Toronto road closures to help you plan, CP24 has a list on their website which you can find here (p.s. it's a long one).
