This is an update to the previous blog, Your Input: Walks and Gardens Art Contest Ends Jun.14 + Gardiner Expy East’s Future – Public Forum Jun.13, 2013.

  • Waterfront Toronto and the City of Toronto, the project co-proponents, have resumed the Gardiner Expressway & Lake Shore Boulevard Reconfiguration Environmental Assessment and Integrated Urban Design Study.
  • The study is focusing on the following four alternatives for the future of the Gardiner East which is the segment of the Gardiner Expressway and Lake Shore Boulevard, approximately east of Jarvis Street.

  1. Maintain the elevated expressway.
  2. Improve the urban fabric while maintaining the existing expressway.
  3. Replace with a new above or below grade expressway.
  4. Remove the elevated expressway and build a new boulevard.

Since the last Public Forum held on June 13, 2013, the study team has developed alternative solutions along with draft criteria that would be used to evaluate the solutions.

There was a public meeting on October 16, 2013, about the Gardiner Expressway/Lake Shore Boulevard East Reconfiguration Environmental Assessment (EA) and Integrated Urban Design Study.

  • The project is examining the feasibility, impacts and costs of the above four alternatives for the easternmost stretch of the elevated roadway approximately between Jarvis and Leslie Streets.
  • At http://www.gardinereast.ca/participate-online, you can also view the October 16 presentation slide deck, and submit your comments on the alternative solutions and evaluation criteria presented at the meeting.
  • Comments and feedback received by October 31, 2013 will be included in the consultation report for this phase of the EA.
