Some of Toronto’s busiest roads are set to be closed off this weekend in part of ActiveTO which could affect your daily commute across the city.
ActiveTO road closures in the city allow pedestrians and cyclists to practice safe physical distancing while staying active outdoors.
From Saturday, August 22 at 6 am to August 23 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 also be closed.
- Lake Shore Boulevard East (eastbound lanes only) from Leslie Street to just south of Woodbine Avenue (Kew Beach Avenue)
- Bayview Avenue from Front Street East to Rosedale Valley Road, and River Street from Gerrard Street East to Bayview Avenue
According to the city, public parking lots with access to parks and beaches, will not be accessible if they are in close proximity to the major road closure area.
Toronto city staff will monitor routes close by and make changes as needed. Other locations are being reviewed for closures for the following weekend and beyond.
These road closures will be in place every weekend until the end of September 2020.
