Some of Toronto’s busy roads will be closed this weekend for maintenance and as part of ActiveTO which might affect your daily commute.
In line with ActiveTO, road closures in the city permit pedestrians and cyclists to practice social distancing while enjoying their time outdoors. From Saturday, August 15 at 6 am to August 16 at 11 pm, here are the roads that 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 be closed.
As Don Valley Parkway will endure a weekend closure for annual maintenance, only one ActiveTO road closure will take place this weekend.
From Friday, August 14 at 11 pm until Monday, August 17 at 5 am, the closure will extend the entire expressway from Highway 401 to the F.G. Gardiner Expressway.
The rain date is planned for Friday, August 21 to Monday, August 24.
“Residents planning to use those roads should access them by bike or as a pedestrian because nearby parking is limited and there is no onsite parking available,” states the City of Toronto.
Parking lots located by Sunnyside Park, Budapest Park, and Sir Casimir Gzowski Park will also be closed during the weekend and overnight parking will not be allowed for use during this time.
All vehicles are expected to be moved before midnight on Friday, according to the city.
