Partial closure of westbound Gardiner Expressway for sign replacement
Toronto's 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 westbound collector lanes of the Gardiner Expressway will be closed between Royal York Road and Kipling Avenue on Sunday, December 8 from 12:01 a.m. to 9 a.m.

As a result of this closure, westbound motorists will not be able to access the Gardiner Expressway at Islington Avenue or exit the roadway at either Islington Avenue or Kipling Avenue. Traffic can rejoin the westbound Gardiner Expressway at Kipling Avenue.

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.

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 site can be accessed at
