Road closures planned downtown with the Raptors and Jays both at home tonight
Downtown Toronto is going to be a very busy place tonight.
The Raptors are back home for game five against Philadelphia at 8 p.m. and even fans who don't have tickets will pack into Jurassic Park.
The series is tied at two games a piece.
To add to the crowds, the Jays have a home game against the Twins just after 7 p.m.
Toronto Police are warning of road closures in the area. In a news release, they say:
The closures/restrictions in the area of the Scotiabank Arena will commence at 4 p.m., and remain in effect until the conclusion of both games. The restrictions around the Rogers Centre will commence at 5 p.m., and will also remain in effect until the conclusion of the game.
Additional road restrictions/closures will include the closure of York Street between Lakeshore Boulevard and Front Street, as well as the closure of Bremner Boulevard, east of Grand Trunk. The other restrictions in the area which have been in place since the baseball season and playoffs began will continue to be in effect.
