With this in mind, the TPS is preparing to restrict access in and around the area of Bremner Street, from Spadina Avenue to York Street.
The area of the Rogers Centre will have controlled access with checkpoints managed by the Toronto Police Service. This is to ensure enhanced public safety while limiting the flow of vehicular traffic in the area.
For those using accessibility vehicles and other mobility-accessible services when attending the Air Canada Centre, Bay Street Gate 2 will be available.
For those attending the Rogers Centre, Rees Street, northbound, from Lake Shore Boulevard West will be used for accessibility vehicles and other mobility-accessible services. A staging area for those using accessibility services will be set up on Rees Street, at Bremner Boulevard, for gate 7 and off Blue Jays Way, in front of the Marriott Hotel, when entering through gate 13. Rees Street will also be available for those patrons parking at the Rogers Centre.
Police, in partnership with the Rogers Centre and Air Canada Centre, are encouraging people to use public transit or other carpool options.
The public may also notice other security measures in the surrounding area, including an increased police presence and/or the use of other public and private sector resources. While there is no imminent threat at this time, security issues are closely monitored and changes will be implemented as required.
