As the city nears the end on another short workweek due to the Labour Day long weekend, Toronto road closures are set for this coming weekend for ActiveTO and TIFF.
If you’re planning on heading out for a drive in the next few days, here’s what roads are closed this week.
These road closures, in part of ActiveTO, allow cyclists and pedestrians in the city to practice social distance while exercising outdoors. For this weekend, from Saturday, September 12 at 6 am, until Sunday, September 13 at 11 pm, these roads will be closed:
- Lake Shore Boulevard West (eastbound lanes only) from Windermere Avenue to Stadium Road. As a result, the eastbound Gardiner Expressway off-ramp to Lake Shore Boulevard West (exit #146) will also be closed
- Bayview Avenue from Front Street East to Rosedale Valley Road, and River Street from Gerrard Street East to Bayview Avenue
According to the city, the Lake Shore Boulevard East closure from Leslie Street to just south of Woodbine Avenue will not be in place this weekend in order to allow closures and restrictions for the Gardiner rehabilitation work.
Although TIFF will be a whole lot different than years before, Toronto will still be closing a few roads from September 10 to September 19.
There will be a full closure of Polson Street from Cherry Street to the end of Polson Street, according to the Toronto Police Service.
It will occur during the entire festival between 5 pm and 3 am.
The second closure is the north curb lane of Polson Street from Cherry Street to the end of Polson Street, as well as the east curb lane closure of Widmer Street from King Street to the laneway north of King Street from September 8 until Sunday, September 20.
