The Pan/ParaPan Am Games are only 6 months away. What’s going to happen in our little corner of the City and what is the impact on our daily lives?
The Pan AM Games take place from July 10 to 26. The ParaPan Am Games are Aug. 7 to 14.
The Games are expected to draw 7,500 athletes, 23,000 volunteers, 4,000 members of the media and 1.4-million spectators.
There will be road closures to CNE/Exhibition grounds, Lakeshore Blvd., Queensway, Ellis Avenue, Parkside Drive to name a few. In some situations you will not have access to the street or to homes on the street.
Here is some reading material from The Star, GlobalNews and Hamilton Spectator. The Toronto Police have a document titled Road Event Road Closures that outlines in more detail the where and when. You can contact them at firstname.lastname@example.org for more information.
