Queens_Quay_construction_2_M

Unrelated to the recent construction that has been taking place outside of the museum, we have an important notice about additional road work to keep in mind when making travel arrangements.

There will be a partial intersection closure at Spadina Av./ Lakeshore Blvd. and the Gardiner Eastbound off-ramp between January 19th and January 21st.

Pedestrian access will remain open at all times but below are access routes available during this portion of the construction.

VEHICLE:
Lakeshore Blvd (eastbound)

  • one lane straight through the intersection will be open

Spadina Ave. (southbound)

  • one lane straight through the intersection will be open
  • right-turn Gardiner Expressway/ Lakeshore Blvd. on-ramp will be open

Gardiner Expressway (eastbound) off-ramp at Spadina Ave.

  • one lane will be closed

TTC SERVICE

  • replacement bus service from King Street to Queens Quay Loop will continue to operate
  • northbound buses will detour from Lakesore Blvd. to Rees St./ Bremner Blvd. from January 19-21

And to update you  on how the Queens Quay revitalization has been coming along, we have news that the major demolition and repaving of the TTC corridor is complete however,  Westbound traffic is being diverted to the north, centre or south travel lanes depending on the type of construction required along the corridor.

Bay Street to 55 Harbour Square

  • Traffic will remain on the south side of the street to accommodate Toronto Hydro (PLP) crews who continue to work in the north lanes. Local traffic for 10/20 Bay Street and the EllisDon construction site will be permitted through this work area.

55 Harbour Square to Robertson Crescent

  • Traffic has moved to the centre of Queens Quay. Please note that the TTC bus stops at York Street and Lower Simcoe Street are now located in the centre travel lane. A special loading/unloading area has been created for each stop using concrete jersey barriers and a designated walkway from the signalized intersection provides safe access to the bus stops.

Rees Street to Spadina Avenue

  • There will continue to be a single lane of westbound traffic (on the north side of the street) in this area.The TTC bus stop just past Rees Street will remain on the northside curb and sidewalk.

And as always, you can steer clear of the cars by following our pedestrian directions or check out the original construction notice here for detailed information about what stage the work is in and what to expect in the coming weeks.
