Partial closure of eastbound Gardiner Expressway for sign replacement
The Transportation Services Division will be replacing four overhead signs on the Gardiner Expressway this weekend. To ensure safety for both the public and those working at the site, the eastbound collector lanes of the Gardiner Expressway will be closed between Wickman Road and Royal York Road on Sunday, December 1 from 12:01 a.m. to 9 a.m.

During the nine-hour closure, motorists will not be able to access or exit the eastbound Gardiner Expressway collector lanes at any location between Wickman Road and Royal York Road, including the eastbound exit to Park Lawn Road.

Traffic can rejoin the eastbound Gardiner Expressway via Lake Shore Boulevard east of Park Lawn Road.

The new signs will provide improved visibility at longer distances and for night driving.

In addition to the planned overhead sign replacement, the City will be undertaking general roadway maintenance, guide rail inspection and repairs and bridge inspections during the closure.

Three overhead signs will be installed in the westbound lanes of the Gardiner Expressway at this same location next weekend, which will result in a closure in the westbound direction next weekend.

In addition, the City has introduced T.O. INview, a map that shows information about planned capital construction work taking place across the city. The new site can be accessed at
