Proposed expressway closures for City of Toronto maintenance work and major events this spring and summer
The City of Toronto has confirmed a schedule of weekend closures for its expressways during the 2017 spring/summer period.

Weekend road closures include the following details:

• The entire Don Valley Parkway between the Gardiner Expressway and Highway 401 will be closed for spring maintenance activities from Friday, April 21 at 11 p.m. to Monday, April 24 at 5 a.m.

• The Gardiner Expressway will be closed from Carlaw Avenue to the Humber Bridge and the Don Valley Parkway will be closed from Highway 401 to the Gardiner Expressway on Sunday, June 4 from 2 a.m. to 2 p.m. to accommodate the Ride for Heart event that day.

• The eastbound lanes of the Gardiner Expressway from the Humber Bridge to Carlaw Avenue and the northbound lanes of the Don Valley Parkway from the Gardiner Expressway to Eglinton Avenue, including all ramps, will be closed on Sunday, July 23 from 2 a.m. to noon during the Toronto Triathlon Festival.

There is no planned closure for the Gardiner Expressway this spring.

The work scheduled for the Don Valley Parkway 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.
