ROLLING OVERNIGHT LANE CLOSURES ON LAKE SHORE BLVD AS PART OF GARDINER REHAB
Feb 14, 2019
By Bob Komsic
Motorists should be aware that 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 upcoming work on the underside of the Gardiner Expressway.
At least one westbound land will always remain open to reduce impact on traffic.
The intermittent 15-minute rolling lane closures will happen hourly, overnight from 10pm to 5am, expect for Friday and Saturday nights.
On February 25 and 26 and March 4 and 5, one full-lane will be closed from 10pm to 5am, instead of the rolling closures.
After March 7, more lane closures will be required in the area so crews can continue to install access platforms 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.
Details will be released in advance.
The first phase of major rehabilitation work on the eastern Gardiner will begin this summer and is expected to be done by early 2021.
The work will replace the entire concrete deck and steel girders between Jarvis and Cherry Streets, replace the eastbound on-ramp at Jarvis and westbound off-ramp at Sherbourne, rehabilitate the westbound off-ramp leading to Yonge, Bay and York Streets, as well as make other improvements.
