Section of Lake Shore Boulevard closing tonight for emergency work
The eastbound lanes of Lake Shore Boulevard from Carlaw Avenue to Leslie Street in Toronto will be closed to traffic from today (October 28) at 8 p.m. to Sunday, October 29 at 11:59 p.m. for emergency repairs to railway tracks in the roadway.

Eastbound traffic will be diverted either northbound or southbound at Carlaw Avenue. Westbound traffic on Lake Shore Boulevard will not be affected.

For safety reasons, eastbound traffic on the Gardiner Expressway will be diverted to the northbound Don Valley Parkway to prevent having three lanes of traffic redirected at the intersection of Lake Shore Boulevard and Carlaw Avenue.

The sidewalk and bike path on the south side of Lake Shore Boulevard will also be closed during the closure.

The rail crossings were repaired on a temporary basis in June to keep the road and the railway track open through the busy summer event season, with the intention of making permanent repairs later in the year.

Toronto is Canada's largest city, the fourth largest in North America, and home to a diverse population of about 2.8 million people. It is a global centre for business, finance, arts and culture and is consistently ranked one of the world's most livable cities. For information on non-emergency City services and programs, Toronto residents, businesses and visitors can visit, call 311, 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, or follow us @TorontoComms.
