The eastbound lanes of Lake Shore Boulevard East between Leslie and Woodbine will not be closed on the Labor Day long weekend for ActiveTO. However, the Gardiner Expressway ramps at Lake Shore and Logan Avenue (shown in photo) are now permanently closed and being demolished.
The City of Toronto’s ActiveTO initiative will take place this Labor Day weekend, but it will not include the lane closure on Lake Shore East Boulevard.
Most summer weekends, the city closed the eastbound lanes of Lake Shore Boulevard East between Woodbine Avenue and Leslie Street to vehicular traffic to allow activities such as biking, roller skating lined up, walking and jogging.
However, due to the impacts of the closure of the access ramps to the far east of the Gardiner Expressway at Lake Shore Boulevard East and Logan Avenue, the closure of ActiveTO will not take place.
The Gardiner Ramps were closed permanently on the night of August 31 and this part of the highway is now demolished as part of the Gardiner Highway Rehabilitation Plan and the Port Lands Flood Protection Project.
ActiveTO closures will be in effect in other areas, including Bayview Avenue between Rosedale Valley Road and Lawren Harris Square.
This weekend will be closed from 6 a.m. on Saturday, September 4 until 9 p.m. on Sunday, September 5.
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
