Construction to partially close Park Lawn Road and Lake Shore Boulevard West intersection this long weekend
The intersection of Park Lawn Road/Marine Parade Drive and Lake Shore Boulevard West in Toronto will be partially closed from Friday, October 6 at 10 a.m. to Tuesday, October 10 at 6 a.m. as the City replaces the TTC streetcar track.

Eastbound and westbound traffic on Lake Shore Boulevard West will be maintained in the curb lanes through the intersection. Southbound traffic on Park Lawn Road will be able to turn right onto westbound Lake Shore Boulevard West only. No left turns will be permitted to eastbound Lake Shore Boulevard West.

Northbound traffic on Marine Parade Drive will be able to turn right onto eastbound Lake Shore Boulevard West only. No left turns will be permitted to westbound Lake Shore Boulevard. Drivers will be able to access westbound Lake Shore Boulevard West using Silver Moon Drive.

TTC service on several routes in the area will be affected by the partial closure as noted below:
• 501L/301 Queen buses will be maintained along regular routing.
• 501M Queen will operate a clockwise service linking The Queensway with Lake Shore Boulevard and Park Lawn Road.
• 145 Downtown/Humber Bay Express buses will proceed west on Lake Shore Boulevard, through the Park Lawn Road intersection
• 66B Prince Edward buses will divert south on Prince Edward, east on The Queensway, south on Windermere Avenue, west on Lake Shore Boulevard, and north on Park Lawn Road.

More information about TTC route changes will be available at
Enhanced signage will inform drivers of the road closures and signal-timing changes on parallel roads will help manage traffic in the area. Road users should expect delays and increased traffic on nearby roads.
