Portion of Lake Shore Boulevard East eastbound lanes to be closed for entire Thanksgiving long weekend for ActiveTO

The eastbound lanes of Lake Shore Boulevard East between Leslie Street and Kew Beach Avenue will be closed to traffic for the entire Thanksgiving long weekend for ActiveTO activities.

The City of Toronto’s ActiveTO road closure of the eastbound lanes of Lake Shore Boulevard East between Leslie Street and Kew Beach Avenue will take place for the entire Thanksgiving long weekend.

This weekend’s road closure will begin at 6 a.m. on Saturday, Oct. 10, and will continue through until 11 p.m. on Monday, Oct. 12.

ActiveTO closures were implemented as part of the city’s response to COVID-19. Road closures along busy streets and trails have allowed thousands of residents to be outside since the spring with ample space allowing for physical distancing.

Along with Lake Shore Boulevard East, ActiveTO also includes the closure of other major roadways to traffic for people to enjoy.

For this Thanksgiving long weekend, other major roads to be closed are Bayview Avenue from Front Street East to Rosedale Valley Road, and River Street from Gerrard Street East to Bayview Avenue, and Lake Shore Boulevard West (eastbound lanes only) from Windermere Avenue to Stadium Road.

Residents planning to use the roads for ActiveTO activities are encouraged to access them by bicycle or as a pedestrian.
