Last Updated Jul 13, 2017 at 9:06 am EDT

If you normally take Lake Shore Boulevard into downtown Toronto, you could be in for a slower drive for the rest of the week.

Road closures are now in effect for this weekend’s Honda Indy.

The southbound lanes of Strachan Avenue are closed between Lake Shore Boulevard and Fleet Street, in preparation for the event. Lake Shore is also shut down both ways from Strachan to British Columbia Drive.

Both closures will be in effect until 11 p.m. on Sunday, Toronto police say. The only access to Ontario Place will be from the foot of Strachan.

The TTC will also divert several routes to accommodate the race, including the 511 Bathurst streetcar, 29 Dufferin bus, 509 Harbourfront streetcar and the 510 Spadina streetcar.

The 31st edition of the Honda Indy revs up on Friday, with the race on Sunday afternoon.
