The Waterfront Trail Cycle Track between Norris Crescent and First Street is now open! We want to thank everyone who has provided their input on the project. We have heard a range of perspectives about the bike lanes and staff will continue to monitor and address operational and safety issues and concerns received from residents. Thank you again!

Update Fall 2018:

Transportation Services’ Cycling Infrastructure and Programs Unit has engaged StreetARToronto to facilitate murals on the concrete barriers comprising the Lake Shore Boulevard Cycle Track. There will be a Traffic Lane Closure for the Concrete Barrier Painting Project on Lake Shore Boulevard from First Avenue to Norris Crescent from 9 a.m. October 12 to 9 p.m. October 14.

Cyclists traveling east bound during construction will be accommodated in the closed, east bound traffic lane on Lake Shore Boulevard West. West bound cyclists will have to travel in the shared west bound lane on Lake Shore Boulevard West. Cyclists will be able to cross at signalized intersections at First Street, Royal York Road, Myles Road / Symons Street.
