Intersection closed on the weekend – Queen Street East and Woodbine Avenue
Northbound and southbound traffic on Woodbine Avenue and westbound traffic on
Queen Street East will be unable to use the intersection of Woodbine Avenue and
Queen Street East from Friday, April 15 at 10 a.m. to Monday, April 18 at 5
a.m. due to scheduled repairs for the streetcar tracks on Queen Street East.

To accommodate this closure, traffic will be stopped at the following locations:

  • Southbound traffic on Woodbine will be closed at Kingston Road
  • Westbound traffic on Queen Street East will be closed at Elmer Avenue

    Eastbound traffic into the Beaches area will be the only traffic permitted
    during this period.

    Due to the nature of the closure, eastbound traffic travelling on Lake Shore
    Boulevard East will not be able to continue northbound on Woodbine Avenue and
    will be rerouted at Coxwell Avenue. All eastbound traffic on Lake Shore
    Boulevard East will be redirected north on Coxwell Avenue to access Eastern
    Avenue/Kingston Road. Local traffic will be able to access streets east of
    Coxwell Avenue by using Queen Street East.

    Traffic signals will be modified on Lake Shore Boulevard East and Coxwell
    Avenue to accommodate the anticipated extra traffic in the area.

    For further information about these and other closures, check with the City’s
    RoadInfo Traveller Information Hotline at 416-599-9090 or visit the City’s Web
