The ActiveTO initiative was introduced last year in response to the COVID-19 pandemic as a way to allow for physical distancing by giving cyclists and pedestrians more space on roadways.

The following road closures will be in effect from 6 a.m. Saturday to 9 p.m. Sunday:

  • Lake Shore Boulevard West (eastbound lanes), between Windermere Avenue and Stadium Road
  • Lake Shore Boulevard East (eastbound lanes), between Leslie Street and Woodbine Avenue
  • Bayview Avenue, between Front Street East and Rosedale Valley Road
  • River Street between Bayview Avenue and Spruce Street

 

The City is also reminding drivers that roads in High Park will remain closed to traffic on the weekends to ensure park-goers have space to ensure proper physical distancing.
