Westbound Lake Shore Boulevard lane closures, York to Rees, until July 27

Lake Shore Boulevard, from York Street to Rees Street, will have reduced lanes of traffic from Monday, April 18 to Wednesday, July 27 to accommodate major work for Toronto Hydro.

The westbound Lake Shore Boulevard will be reduced to one lane with the exception of 3 to 7 p.m. (weekdays), when two lanes will be open.

Construction will take place 24-hours-a-day, seven-days-a-week to reduce the length of time required to complete the work. The work schedule for this project has been adjusted so that all westbound lanes of traffic will re-open during key events and activities in the city including the full closure of the Gardiner Expressway (May 13-16) and the Ride for Heart (June 5).

The City has a web-based map http://www.toronto.ca/roadrestrictions to help residents and visitors make their travel plans. Information about the City's planned capital construction work is available at http://www.toronto.ca/inview.
