The City of Toronto will be performing a number of maintenance activities on Allen Rd. this weekend. In order to undertake this work safely, a closure of the road is required.

The northbound Allen Rd. will be closed from Eglinton Ave. to Highway 401 on Saturday, June 2 from 12:01 a.m. to 11:59 p.m.

On Sunday, June 3, the road will be reduced to one northbound lane from Dell Park Ave. to Lawrence Ave. from 12:01 a.m. to 11:59 p.m.

The northbound Allen Rd. off-ramp to Lawrence Ave. will remain closed until 6 p.m. on Wednesday, June 6.

Specific activities that will be undertaken during this closure include:
- Demolition work at the Dell Park Ave. bridge
- RESCU sensor installation on Allen Rd. at Ridelle Ave. and Ranee Ave.
- TTC bridge maintenance work at Lawrence Ave. W.
- Pavement markings and sign maintenance and

“The work that we are doing this weekend on Allen Rd. is important maintenance work to keep the roadway in a state of good repair,” said Gary Welsh, General Manager, Transportation Services. “Motorists are asked to be patient and make sure to take extra time to get to and from their destinations.”

Motorists can use Avenue Rd, Bayview Ave., Bathurst St., and Dufferin St., as alternate routes during the closure. Whenever possible, the public is encouraged to consider using public transit as a convenient alternative.
