Lane re-opens on Lake Shore Blvd. E.
The eastbound lane of traffic on Lake Shore Blvd. just east of Yonge St. that was closed this morning after a piece of concrete fell from the Gardiner Expressway has now re-opened.

The lane was closed at 6:30 a.m. as a precaution while City crews inspected the structure.

“We have inspected the bridge and it is structurally sound,” said John Bryson, Manager, Structures and Expressways. “Safety is our first priority. The City performs regular inspections and maintenance to make sure the bridges are in a state of good repair.”

Toronto is Canada’s largest city and sixth largest government, and home to a diverse population of about 2.6 million people. It is the economic engine of Canada and one of the greenest and most creative cities in North America. In the past three years Toronto has won more than 50 awards for quality and innovation in delivering public services. Toronto’s government is dedicated to prosperity, opportunity and liveability for all its residents.
