Several road closures will be in effect this weekend for ActiveTO and construction work.


The eastbound lanes of the Lake Shore will be closed from Windermere Avenue to Stadium Road, and from Leslie Street to just south of Woodbine Avenue.

Bayview will be shut down between Front Street and Rosedale Valley Road, and River will be closed from Gerrard Street to Bayview.

The closures will be in place from 6 a.m. on Saturday to 11 p.m. on Sunday.

ActiveTO allows people to walk, run, and cycle on city streets while being physically distant.

Other closures for construction

There will also be a partial closure of the Lake Shore and Sherbourne Street intersection this weekend, so construction crews can remove and replace sections of the Gardiner Expressway above.

The northbound lanes of Highway 400, from Highway 407 to Highway 401, will be closed for the rehabilitation of the bridge deck at Finch Avenue West. The construction is part of the Finch West Light Rail Transit project.
