Help Decide the Future of the Gardiner Expressway East
The Project: Waterfront Toronto and the City of Toronto have resumed the preparation of the Gardiner Expressway / Lake Shore Boulevard 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 and east of the Don Valley Parkway. Four alternatives will be considered within the study area, including: maintaining, improving, replacing, or removing the elevated expressway.
The Environmental Assessment: The proposed study area for the EA is shown on the map below. Key components of an EA include consultation with government agencies, Aboriginal communities and interested persons; consideration and evaluation of alternatives; and the management of potential environmental effects. Conducting an EA promotes good environmental planning before decisions are made about a proposal.
Get Involved: Your input into this important project is critical. The Project Team will be hosting a number of public forums, live webcasts, workshops and online opportunities for interested persons to participate in the EA planning process. We invite you to the first public forum where you can learn more about the project, the alternatives being considered and what other jurisdictions have done with elevated waterfront expressways. You will also be able to ask questions and speak directly with members of the project team, offer input and submit comments.
Please note that the presentations will start at 6:30PM.
