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.
This project will utilize thermal energy from the sewer to provide Toronto Western 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 June 2024:
A pedestrian walkway will be provided around the excavation.
From March 1 to December 31, 2023, Blue Jays Way, from King Street West to Mercer Street, has lane restrictions for the installation of new chilled/hot water pipelines at the 400 King Street West condominium development. The King Street West north sidewalk is also closed from Peter Street to Charlotte Street.
From Wednesday, August 30 to Wednesday, September 20, Adelaide Street is reduced to one lane eastbound at Portland Street for streetscaping works. Pedestrian and cycling access will be maintained.
From September 18 until November 3, Lake Shore Boulevard West (westbound direction) will be reduced to one lane at Rees Street for the installation of a connection between the Raw Water Pipe Tunnel Riser and the John Street Pumping Station; part of the Enwave Deep Lake Water Cooling Expansion Project.
From September 18 to December 31, 2023, Richmond Street West at Simcoe Street will be reduced to one lane in for the rebuilding of a Toronto Hydro cable chamber underground.
