The speeds on Lake Shore Boulevard West are about to increase dramatically as the Indy’s need for speed descends on Toronto.

To prepare for the event, Lake Shore Boulevard West will be closed in both directions from Strachan Avenue to Ontario Drive.

This is an extended closure so the competing cars can practice today.

The section of the lakeside roadway won’t reopen until the engines of the race cars have cooled late Sunday night.

Speeding cars aren’t the only thing burning up Toronto streets. Salsa on St. Clair will close down St. Clair Avenue West from Christie Street to Winona Drive Saturday and Sunday.
