Heads-up drivers: Road closures start for Honda Indy 1

The Honda Indy is this weekend and road closures ahead of the roar on the lakeshore start Wednesday afternoon.

Starting at noon, southbound Strachan Avenue will be closed from Fleet Street to Lake Shore Boulevard West.

Then at 9 p.m., Lake Shore will shut down from Strachan Avenue to British Columbia Drive.

The roads are expected to reopen at 5:30 a.m. Monday.

The Indy starts on Friday with “Fan Friday” and the main race is on Sunday.

Police are asking anyone attending the three-day Honda Indy festivities to take public transit. The TTC and GO Transit will be providing increased service to Exhibition Place.

However, for those taking the subway, riders will navigate around a partial subway closure on Line 1 and a late opening on Line 2.

On Saturday and Sunday, trains won’t be running between Lawrence and St. Clair stations. Then on Sunday, subway service on Line 2 between St. George and Broadview stations will start at noon. Shuttle buses and Wheels-Tran service will be running.
