Partial closure of the Lake Shore Boulevard/Spadina Avenue intersection
The intersection of Lake Shore Boulevard and Lower Spadina Avenue will be partially closed this weekend and next weekend for streetcar track construction.

Timing of the closures:
- From Friday, November 1 at 7 p.m. to Monday, November 4 at 6 a.m.
- From Friday, November 8 at 8 p.m. to Tuesday, November 12 at 6 a.m.

Traffic travelling eastbound on Lake Shore Boulevard will be reduced to one lane at the intersection. The ramp from the eastbound Gardiner Expressway to Spadina Avenue will also be reduced to one lane during these times. Overnight work is expected to take place during this closure.

Traffic that is westbound on Lake Shore Boulevard will not be affected by the work.

Truck and bus drivers travelling southbound on Spadina Avenue should note that only passenger vehicles will be permitted to turn left onto eastbound Lake Shore Boulevard. Trucks and buses will be directed to divert via Bremner Boulevard to Rees Street, Lower Simcoe Street or York Street, where they can turn south and re-join eastbound traffic on Lake Shore Boulevard. The 510 Spadina TTC bus has been using the Bremner Boulevard route for the past few months.

Construction along the 1.7-kilometre stretch of Queen's Quay from just west of Lower Spadina Avenue to just east of Bay Street will completely rebuild and revitalize the area – both above and below ground. Waterfront Toronto is leading the transformation of Queen's Quay, which is expected to be complete by spring 2015.

Toronto is Canada's largest city and sixth largest government, and home to a diverse population of about 2.8 million people. Toronto's government is dedicated to delivering customer service excellence, creating a transparent and accountable government, reducing the size and cost of government and building a transportation city. For information on non-emergency City services and programs, Toronto residents, businesses and visitors can dial 311, 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.
