ActiveTO to be Extended Into October

Earlier this week, the City announced that the ActiveTO program of road closures will be extended into October.

For this weekend, the following closures will be in place from Saturday, October 3 at 6 a.m. to Sunday, October 4 at 11 p.m.:

  • Lake Shore Boulevard West (eastbound lanes only) from Windermere Avenue to Stadium Road. As a result, the eastbound Gardiner Expressway off-ramp to Lake Shore Boulevard West (exit #146) will also be closed
  • Lake Shore Boulevard East (eastbound lanes only) from Leslie Street to Woodbine Avenue
  • Bayview Avenue from Front Street East to Rosedale Valley Road, and River Street from Gerrard Street East to Bayview Avenue

Residents planning to use those roads should access them by bike or as a pedestrian because nearby parking is limited, and there is no parking on site.

ActiveTO has provided space for thousands of people to be physically active while respecting physical distancing. Last week, the City announced that an average of 18,000 cyclists used the Lake Shore West closure on warm summer days.

City staff will report back in January 2021 on lessons learned from this year’s programs and make recommendations for modifications to the program for 2021.
