Section of Military Trail roadway in Scarborough closed for road work and watermain repairs
Military Trail from Ellesmere Road (east of Scarborough Golf Club Road) to East Highland Creek is now closed to traffic in both directions until the fall for emergency roadway and watermain repair work. During the closure, motorists are advised to use Neilson Road as an alternative route to travel south to Ellesmere Road.

In addition, Military Trail between East Highland Creek and Neilson Road, while open in both directions most of the time, will occasionally be restricted to one shared lane as a result of road work. City of Toronto staff will be in place to manage traffic flow during those periods.

Signage will be in place to help motorists detour around the construction area. The City will make efforts to minimize disruption resulting from this work.

The City has a web-based map to help residents and visitors make their travel plans, available at Information about the City's planned capital construction work is available at

This work is part of the City's comprehensive, co-ordinated strategy to rehabilitate and upgrade Toronto's roads, transit and underground infrastructure for current and future needs.

Toronto is Canada's largest city, the fourth largest in North America, and home to a diverse population of about 2.8 million people. It is a global centre for business, finance, arts and culture and is consistently ranked one of the world's most livable cities. In 2017, Toronto will honour Canada's 150th birthday with "TO Canada with Love," a year-long program of celebrations, commemorations and exhibitions. For information on non-emergency City services and programs, Toronto residents, businesses and visitors can visit, call 311, 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, or follow us on Twitter at and on Instagram at
