Media Advisory - City of Toronto to open new eastbound ramp from the Gardiner Expressway to York/Bay/Yonge Streets
This media advisory was issued earlier today through CanadaNewsWire, on behalf of the City of Toronto.

Mayor John Tory will be joined by Councillor Jaye Robinson (Ward 25 Don Valley West), Chair of the City of Toronto's Public Works and Infrastructure Committee, to announce the opening of the new eastbound York/Bay/Yonge ramp from the Gardiner Expressway to Lower Simcoe and Harbour Streets.

Date: Sunday, January 28
Time: 2:30 p.m.
Location: Gardiner Expressway's York/Bay/Yonge eastbound off ramp (south of Harbour Street on Lower Simcoe Street)
Parking: Media vehicles can park within the fenced enclosed portion of the roadway, on the east side of Lower Simcoe Street, directly across from the bottom of the new ramp.

Please note: Areas beside the ramp are still active construction zones and will be off limits. Media may only access the ramp from the bottom, up to the point where two crash trucks will be stationed. No access is permitted beyond the trucks for health and safety reasons.

The Gardiner Expressway ramp at Spadina Avenue will be closed and there will be no access to Lake Shore Boulevard eastbound. A previously unlocked gate will be closed in preparation for the ramp opening.

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.
