Toronto Closing Some Streets To Cars To Make Space For Pedestrians And Cyclists

Toronto’s going to look a lot different on the weekends. Mayor Tory is closing 57 kilometers of road to make way people and cyclists. Some roads will be closed to just local traffic while others will be closed entirely. Toronto will be closing portions of major streets on a trial basis every weekend to create enough room to be physically active and support physical distancing. On a long weekend closures will start Saturday at 6 a.m. until 11 p.m. Monday. On a regular weekend Saturday 6 a.m. until 11 p.m. on Sunday.
