Help Decide the Future of the Gardiner Expressway East

Join us for the second phase of public and stakeholder consultations on the Gardiner Expressway/Lake Shore Boulevard East Reconfiguration Environmental Assessment (EA) and Integrated Urban Design Study.  The EA will determine the future of the Gardiner Expressway East and Lake Shore Boulevard East, from approximately Jarvis Street to approximately Leslie Street.

Four alternative solutions are being considered:

       · Maintain the elevated expressway;

       · Improve the urban fabric while maintaining the existing expressway;

       · Replace with a new above or below grade expressway; and,

       · Remove the elevated expressway and build a new boulevard.

During this meeting, you can see plans that illustrate each of these four alternatives. The criteria that will be used to evaluate the alternatives will also be introduced for public input during the meeting. We encourage the public and stakeholders to review the background materials about the project at:
