The track is being built and the engines are being revved as Toronto gets set to host the Honda Indy from July 18th to July 20th.  Road closures for the event began Tuesday night with two lanes on Lake Shore Boulevard being shut down in both directions between Strachan Avenue and Ontario Drive.  The track build closure began on Tuesday, July 2nd and will continue until Thursday, July 17th, when all lanes will then be shut down for the big event.

Indy officials say they are doing three things to help alleviate traffic in the area.

“First, we will only do track work at night, long after the major traffic of the day has dissipated and Torontonians have made their way home.  Second, we normally begin our work on Lakeshore Boulevard in June, but this year we won’t start until July when there is less traffic on the roads because of summer holidays.  And third, we will not fully close any arteries in and around Lake Shore Boulevard while we work; there will be partial lane closures only and we guarantee that when a lane is blocked it will be used for essential track work.” said Charlie Johnstone, President of the Honda Indy Toronto in a statement released in June. 

Spectators and fans are being urged to use public transit to attend the race and events.
