I remain confused (again?) as to why they keep talking about the Harbour Lead Rail Line. From everything I hear elsewhere, Ports Toronto and CreateTO are in final stages of abandoning it (and it is now blocked off on east side of Don River.) Frankly, I would like to keep it operational (in the median as is proposed) but I think 'someone' needs to decide if it will actually exist and if it won't then update these plans and schedules to remove it.
lol so lake shore eastbound will be down to 1 lane when the Gardiner Off ramp is closed? That'll be fun for anyone trying to drive to the east end - they will have to exit at Jarvis and go through the single lane gauntlet at Cherry.
Yes as it unknow at this time how the QQE LRT extension will connect to the current Cherry St LRT line. Provision made for the QQE line and how it connect to the new Cherry St going south. It will have to be rebuilt when it comes time for the tracks to be place and maybe the switches.Will the Cherry Street intersection be rebuilt again with the Waterfront East LRT project?
They will, apparently, be leaving room for it and the LRT line (if it ever gets built) is separate and on the east side of Cherry.
Thanks for the information. I guess it's kinda wasteful to rebuild the streetscape twice, but it's probably better than leaving the street in a dreadful condition while we wait for the QQE extension.Yes as it unknow at this time how the QQE LRT extension will connect to the current Cherry St LRT line.

Cycles will use the west side of Cherry St and come 2022 to 2024 the only way to go east as all exist path will be close for the rebuilt of the Lake Shore and the area.
Someone should have a screen shot of the plan shown today how the intersection will look like as I could not take one. Every time I use MS team, something doesn't work. Screen shot this time, raise the hand for the last one and could not speak before that one. Not the only one having issues and seen it in the past. Today, folks couldn't post in the chat.
Come May 2022, the new Cherry St opens and will see the old one close so it can be bury to raise the area to the new level. Opening depends on when the bridges arrive and looks like they are running late at this time.
