In July 2022, the Lake Shore West Construction Hub was launched to conduct logistical planning of the right-of-way, review Construction Management Plans, connect travellers with real-time information, collaborate with enforcement officers and communicate impacts and changes to businesses and communities in the neighbourhood.

Simcoe Street Road Closure for Underground Pedestrian Tunnel Construction

Simcoe Street is closed from Front Street West to Wellington Street West from August 2021 to January 2023 for the construction of an underground pedestrian tunnel.

The north and southbound cycling lanes have been relocated to the west side of the street. Pedestrians are advised to use the sidewalk on the west side of Simcoe Street.

Wellington Street Traffic Flow Changes

Wellington Street West from Simcoe Street to John Street is temporarily one-way for westbound traffic only to accommodate the pedestrian tunnel construction work outlined above.

Toronto Western Hospital Waste Water Energy Transfer Sustainability Project

This project will utilize thermal energy from the sewer to provide Toronto Wester Hospital with 90 per cent of the building’s heating and cooling, reducing the hospital’s natural gas consumption.

In order to complete the project, the following lane restrictions will be in effect until October 2023:

  • One northbound curb lane on Bathurst Street will be closed.
  • One eastbound curb lane on Dundas Street West will be closed.

A pedestrian walkway will be provided around the excavation.
