The closure comes as Toronto battles a winter storm that could drop as much as 20 cm of snow on the city, according to Environment Canada.

Transit services and roads have been disrupted by the slick and difficult driving conditions.

The City of Toronto warned on Tuesday evening snow clearing efforts could continue well past Thursday morning, when the snow is expected to end.
