Enbridge Gas Inc. is proposing to replace 4.5 kilometres (km) of natural gas pipeline. The project is required to replace an existing and critically important high pressure 20-inch steel natural gas pipeline that is currently located underground along Lake Shore Boulevard from Cherry Street to Remembrance Drive in Toronto and on Parliament Street from Mill Street to Lake Shore Blvd.

Enbridge has identified three potential routes that would be technically feasible for the replacement pipeline. These options are shown on the map below. Each route option runs from Bathurst Street to Cherry Street and needs to make several connections along the waterfront. The routes generally parallel Lake Shore Boulevard, Harbour Street, and Queens Quay, and the pipeline would be installed within the municipal road rights‑of-way, where possible. As the location is congested with ongoing developments, the identification of a preferred route option will require input from multiple stakeholders, including the City of Toronto, the public, Indigenous communities, regulatory agencies, and private interest groups.
