ActiveTO Major Road Closures have been extended into October. Availability of Major Road closures may be impacted by planned construction or other road restrictions.
For this weekend, October 3 at 6 a.m. until October 4 at 11 p.m., the following three major road closures will be in place:
Parking lots at Sunnyside Park, Budapest Park and Sir Casimir Gzowski Park, along Lake Shore Boulevard West, will be closed all weekend during ActiveTO closures. Overnight parking is not permitted in these lots and any vehicles should be moved before midnight on Friday.
Popular recreational trails like the Martin Goodman Trail and the Lower Don Trail have been observed to be overcrowded, especially on warmer weekends. Recurring short-term closures (i.e. weekends and holidays) of major streets adjacent to these trails will be implemented to provide more space for walking and cycling, thus enabling practising physical distancing.
Normal weekend closures (except long weekends) will begin at 6 a.m. on Saturdays until 11 p.m. on Sundays.
Public parking lots, such as those with access to parks and beaches, will not be accessible if they fall within the major road closure area.
City Staff will monitor adjacent routes and make adjustments as needed. Other locations are being reviewed for closures for the following weekend and beyond.
