The Toronto Police Service would like to make the public aware of traffic restrictions and security enhancements that will be in place for this Wednesday, August 14, 2019.
The Toronto Blue Jays will be playing at the Rogers Centre against the Texas Rangers starting at 12:37 p.m. The Toronto Blue Jays will be hosting the annual Camp Day event with the expectation of numerous transportation buses attending the area.
To ensure the safe flow of pedestrian and vehicular traffic, a number of additional road restrictions/closures will be in effect for Wednesday’s game. There will be pre-game restrictions on the roadways surrounding the Rogers centre.
The restrictions around the Rogers Centre will commence at 11:00 a.m., and will also remain in effect until the conclusion of the game.
Transportation Buses Drop off/Pick up:
Camp Day Buses:
All Camp Buses Dropping Off or Picking Up groups attending Wednesday’s August 14th game should access the Rogers Centre on Bremner Blvd from the East via Lower Simcoe St. Once all passengers have disembarked the buses will continue west on Bremner Blvd. towards Spadina Ave. All Camp Buses that have Reserved Parking should access the Bus Parking facility from the West via Spadina Ave. and Bremner Blvd.
Accessibility Access for the Rogers Centre:
Gate 7: 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 access.
Gate 13: A similar area will be established on Blue Jays Way in front of the Marriott Hotel, for those entering through gate 13.
The condominium residents in the area as well as the business owners have been provided with security passes for their use, to allow them access during closures, in an effort to alleviate any disruption in their attending work or home.
Police, in partnership with the Rogers Centre, as well as the City of Toronto are encouraging people to use public transit or other carpool options.
The public may also notice other enhanced security measures in the surrounding area, including an increased police presence and/or the use of other public and private sector resources.
