The Toronto Police Service is warning members of the public that the arrival of extreme cold temperatures, and vehicles left unattended and warming up in driveways, has resulted in an increase number of vehicle thefts reported in and around the downtown core.

Rolling overnight lane closures on Lake Shore Boulevard East


News Release:  February 14, 2019

Rolling overnight lane closures on Lake Shore Boulevard East as first step of Gardiner Expressway strategic rehabilitation

From February 19 to March 7, the westbound lanes of Lake Shore Boulevard East between Cherry and Jarvis Streets will have intermittent overnight rolling lane closures, to allow crews to install access platforms for forthcoming work on the underside of the Gardiner Expressway.

At least one westbound lane will always remain open to reduce the impact on traffic. The intermittent 15-minute rolling lane closures will occur hourly, overnight from 10 p.m. to 5 a.m., except for Friday and Saturday nights. On February 25 and 26 and March 4 and 5, one full lane will be closed from 10 p.m. to 5 a.m., instead of the rolling closures.

While the lane closures are in effect, signs will be posted to support the safe travel of all road users, including pedestrians and cyclists.

After March 7, further lane closures will be required on Lake Shore Boulevard East between Cherry and Jarvis Streets, so crews can continue to access platforms on the underside of the Gardiner Expressway and conduct other repairs. A series of lane closures is anticipated to continue until December and may take place during the day and/or overnight. The details, timing and impact of this work will be communicated in advance.

The section of the Gardiner Expressway between Jarvis and Cherry Streets is nearing the end of its service life and is the number one priority in the City of Toronto's Gardiner Expressway Strategic Rehabilitation Plan, which addresses the immediate and long-term rehabilitation needs of the expressway to ensure it remains in a safe and operable condition.

The first phase of major rehabilitation work on the eastern Gardiner Expressway will begin this summer and the project is expected to be completed by early 2021. The work will replace the entire concrete deck and steel girders of the expressway between Jarvis and Cherry Streets, replace the eastbound on-ramp at Jarvis Street and the westbound off-ramp at Sherbourne Street, rehabilitate the westbound off-ramp leading to Yonge, Bay and York Streets, as well as make other improvements. The City will provide more details on this work in the spring. 

More information about this project and the rolling lane closures is available at
