The roar on the lakeshore will begin affecting traffic in downtown Toronto starting Wednesday.

As of noon, the southbound lanes of Strachan Avenue will be closed between Lake Shore Boulevard and Fleet Street, in preparation for the Honda Indy.

At 8 p.m., Lake Shore will be 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.
