Repairs to a sinkhole have closed Yonge Street between College and Alexander streets for the entire weekend. 

Toronto police say the stretch of Yonge will be closed while crews work to repair road damage discovered Friday.

On Saturday, city officials also closed Wood Street, which runs east off Yonge, to Church Street. Grenville Street, which runs west, is also closed to Bay Street. 

Only local traffic is permitted on those roads, police said in a tweet. 

The repairs are among a number of traffic and transit disruptions around the city this weekend. 

The demolition of two west-end bridges will cause major disruptions on the Gardiner Expressway and GO Transit's Lakeshore West line this weekend. Service on the Lakeshore East line will also be affected by track work. 

Meanwhile, there is no subway service on the Toronto Transit Commission's Bloor-Danforth Line (Line 2) between Keele and St. George stations due to scheduled track work. Shuttle buses are running.
