The City of Toronto announced planned road closures that will impact travel this weekend, Saturday, November 7 and Sunday, November 8.
Lake Shore Boulevard West will be reduced to a single lane of traffic (westbound only), between Windermere Avenue and Ellis Avenue from Friday, November 6 at 9 p.m. until Sunday, November 8 at 11:59 p.m. to accommodate a large tower crane hoist.
As well, several filming permits are in place downtown this weekend, including a permit along Asquith Avenue that requires lane restrictions on Church Street.
There will also be no subway service on Line 1 between St. Clair West and St. Andrew stations on Saturday and Sunday to allow for track work. Shuttle buses will operate throughout the closure, stopping at each station along the route. Dupont, St. Patrick and Osgoode stations will be closed, but all others will remain open for fare sales and connection to surface routes and Line 2. The 63 Ossington bus route will also be diverted away from Atlantic Avenue for a large crane lift. Routing details can be found here .
ActiveTO major weekend road closures will not be in place this weekend for factors that include some of the restrictions listed above along with other factors, as well as available capacity along the adjacent Martin Goodman Trail and Don Valley Trail. As temperatures have cooled, City staff have observed that the adjacent trails can accommodate the demand for those using them.
Traffic-signal timing on nearby routes will be enhanced all weekend to help manage congestion associated with planned restrictions and closures.
