A section of Lake Shore Boulevard will be hit by a series of rolling lane closures, starting Wednesday.  

According to a release from the City of Toronto, the lane closures will take place from May 21 to mid July for critical utility work prior to the resurfacing of Lake Shore Boulevard.  The resurfacing is in preparation for the Toronto 2015 Pan Am/Parapan Am Games.  

These details are included in the city's release:

The following areas will experience intermittent westbound lane closures from 6 a.m. to 2:30 p.m.:

- Yonge Street to west of Rees Street

- Bathurst Street to British Columbia Road 

- Parkside Drive to Windermere Avenue

The section between British Columbia Road and Lower Spadina Avenue will experience intermittent eastbound lane closures from 10 a.m. to 8 p.m.

In an effort to minimize disruption, most of the work will take place during non-rush-hour periods. The contractor will work some weekends and evenings to accelerate the completion of the work.

This work was planned for the roadway prior to the scheduling of the work that is currently taking place on the Gardiner Expressway. The work must be completed before the beginning of overnight closures for road resurfacing on Lake Shore Boulevard that will begin in July.
