Lake Shore West / Park Lawn construction:
TTC detours, October 6 to 10



City of Toronto and TTC contractors continue the long-term project to rebuild the streetcar tracks on Lake Shore Boulevard West between Dwight Avenue and Humber Loop.

This weekend, from 10 a.m. Friday, October 6 until 6 a.m. Tuesday, October 10, crews work at the intersection of

  • Lake Shore Boulevard West with Park Lawn Road,

partially blocking traffic lanes.

Track work at the intersection affects TTC service along these routes:

  • 66B Prince Edward;
  • 145 Downtown / Humber Bay express;
  • 301L / 501L Queen / Long Branch shuttle; and
  • 501M Queen / Marine Parade shuttle.

Friday, October 6 morning, crews place traffic-control cones on Lake Shore Boulevard West through the intersection with Park Lawn Road to create a safe work zone. They’ll clear the work zone by 6 a.m. Tuesday, October 10.

Crews are breaking and removing concrete and the old track, pouring new concrete and installing new track.

They work in the intersection continuously through the weekend. Working “around-the-clock” helps the City and TTC to complete the work on schedule and re-open the intersection to general traffic and TTC buses as quickly as possible. The crews finish the noisiest work, such as breaking concrete, before 11 p.m. Other related tasks, including grading, building forms, pouring and curing concrete and assembling and installing new rail continue as the project progresses.


This weekend, east- and westbound motorists can travel along Lake Shore Boulevard West through the intersection — but only in the curb lanes. Southbound motorists on Park Lawn Road can turn only right onto westbound Lake Shore West. Motorists on Park Lawn cannot turn left onto eastbound Lake Shore.

Northbound motorists on Marine Parade Drive can only turn right onto eastbound Lake Shore. They cannot turn left onto westbound Lake Shore. You can access westbound Lake Shore along Silver Moon Drive.

The City is prohibiting parking near the work zone. All sidewalks are open to pedestrians during this construction project.
