Lake Shore Boulevard East will be closed in both directions from Carlaw Avenue to Parliament Street this weekend as demolition work on the Gardiner Expressway east ramps continues.
This weekend will be closed from 9 p.m. on Friday, September 17 until 6 a.m. on Monday, September 20.
Ramps to the Gardiner were permanently closed August 31 from east of Don Valley Parkway at their start and end near Logan Avenue. The ramps are being demolished and Lake Shore Boulevard East is being reengineered as part of the work being done on the weekends of September and October.
The demolition of the ramps is part of the Gardiner Highway reclamation plan and the Port Lands flood protection project.
Due to ongoing work on the Gardiner Ramps, the ActiveTO closure will no longer occur in the eastbound lanes of Lake Shore Boulevard East between Woodbine Avenue and Leslie Street.
However, Bayview Avenue between Rosedale Valley Road and Lawren Harris Square will be closed for ActiveTO from 6 a.m. on September 18 to 9 p.m. on September 19.
ActiveTO offers residents the option to get outside and exercise, while being able to maintain physical distance as warranted by public health restrictions due to the COVID-19 pandemic
