Metro Toronto Convention Centre will host the G20 summit.
To keep traffic flowing as efficiently as possible during Toronto’s June 25-27 G20 summit, the Government of Canada has created a traffic-management strategy to guide vehicles away from the security perimeters surrounding the Metro Toronto Convention Centre, a venue favoured by meeting and event planners.
Expect closures and restrictions on the highways in and around Toronto, June 24 to June 27, due to G20 security operations. These measures will significantly affect traffic flow on the Gardiner Expressway, QEW, Highway 427 and Highway 401, the DVP and connecting arterial roads.
In addition, people living or working near, or travelling to and from, Pearson International Airport should expect significant traffic delays.
Motorists, too, should expect delays and should avoid these routes during the identified periods.
Signs will be posted along the highway corridors to advise motorists of the closures, restrictions and the anticipated significant delays.
These closures will affect inbound traffic into Toronto on June 25 and June 26 and outbound traffic on June 27.
