Don Valley Parkway southbound closure scheduled for night of November 8
The City of Toronto's Transportation Services Division will be performing maintenance activities on the Don Valley Parkway (DVP) overnight for six hours starting at 11 p.m. on November 8. In order to undertake this work safely, a full closure of the roadway will be required at that time.

The southbound lanes of the DVP from Don Mills Road to the Gardiner Expressway will be closed from Monday, November 8 at 11 p.m. to Tuesday, November 9 at 5 a.m. for the work, which will include slope stabilization from Beechwood Drive to Pottery Road, removal of temporary barrier walls at the Dundas Street Bridge, and inspection work at the Queen Street bridge.

Motorists can use Don Mills Road, Bayview Avenue and Leslie Street as alternative routes during the closure. Whenever possible, the public is encouraged to consider using public transit as a convenient alternative.
