Lake Shore Boulevard West joins the list of major arteries that will be shutting down to vehicles this weekend for ActiveTO.
The City had initially closed off an area of Lake Shore East for the program but it will extended to the western portion of the roadway this weekend.

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.
