Weekend event affects transit services, March 8



The City of Toronto is closing

  • Queen’s Park between Bloor Street West and College Street

Sunday morning to accommodate a road race.

(Various sources, including the City and the TTC, describe this event as either the “Nike 1-Miler Fun Run” or the “Nike + Club Relaunch” — regardless, we can’t find a website or any other information about this event.)

While the street is closed, the TTC is detouring buses operating along these routes:

  • 5 Avenue Rd and
  • 94 Wellesley.
