Gardiner Expressway construction affects TTC service, March 7 to 9

Update — Friday, March 13, 8:41 p.m.: Overhead Gardiner Expressway construction again blocks the intersection of Lake Shore Boulevard East with Lower Sherbourne Street from 12:01 a.m. Saturday, March 13 until 5 a.m. Monday, March 16. The TTC is detouring buses.

From 12:01 a.m. Saturday, March 7 until 5 a.m. Monday, March 9, the City of Toronto is closing:

  • Lake Shore Boulevard East between Parliament and Lower Jarvis Streets and
  • Lower Sherbourne Street between The Esplanade and Lake Shore Boulevard East

to accommodate ongoing work on a project to rehabilitate the Frederick G. Gardiner Expressway.

The TTC is detouring buses along this route, while the streets are closed:

  • 75 Sherbourne.


The City previously closed the intersection and the TTC detoured the buses to accommodate the same project from 12:01 a.m. Saturday, February 29 until 5 a.m. Monday, March 2.

From 12:01 a.m. Saturday, March 7 until 5 a.m., Monday, March 9:

  • The City is closing access to or from Lower Sherbourne Street north of Lake Shore Boulevard East.
  • Motorists travelling westward on Lake Shore East can’t turn north- or southward along Lower Sherbourne; they can only proceed through the intersection.
  • Motorists travelling eastbound on Lake Shore can travel southward along Sherbourne, but can’t turn northward.
  • The City is reducing westbound Lake Shore to just one lane east and west of the Sherbourne intersection.

The City says it needs to partially close the intersection so that crews can safely remove and replace panels of the Gardiner Expressway above.


75 Sherbourne

From 12:01 a.m. Saturday, March 6 until 5 a.m. Monday, March 8, southbound buses operate along their regular route to Sherbourne Street and Front Street East, then detour:

eastward along Front East;
southward along Parliament Street; and then
westward along Queens Quay West to Lower Sherbourne Street,
resuming their regular route westward along Queens Quay.

Southbound buses skip their regular stops

  • on Sherbourne Street at Front Street East and
  • on Lower Sherbourne Street at The Esplanade and south of Lake Shore Boulevard East.

Instead, southbound buses drop off or pick up passengers at a temporary stop

  • on Front Street East at Parliament Street.
