We are going to have some out of town friends drop by this week, and we plan to take them to the island, so I was scouting routes around all the construction around Queen’s Quay. It had been a while since I had been there, and there were plenty of crews working frantically to get things wrapped up before the grand opening on June 19. At any rate, it is possible to thread your way along the lakefront, between the Ex and the Harbour Ferry terminal, with the exception of a short section between Bathurst and Dan Leckie Way, where if you are eastbound, the sidewalk on the south side is blocked, and there is no road passage in this direction. Past this point, you can make your way around various detours where you will be mingling with foot traffic as well. Long story short: between Dan Leckie and York you are still better off taking the detour along Lakeshore.
I did take a few phone pix.
