Don Valley Parkway closures scheduled for mid October
The City of Toronto's Transportation Services Division will be performing maintenance activities on the Don Valley Parkway from October 12 to 17. In order to undertake the work safely, a series of full and partial roadway closures will be required.

The northbound lanes of the DVP from the Gardiner Expressway to Eglinton Avenue will be closed for pavement grinding on October 12, 13 and 14 beginning at 10 p.m. each night and continuing to 5 a.m. the following morning.

The northbound lanes of the Don Valley Parkway will be closed from the Gardiner Expressway to Eglinton Avenue for surface paving work from Saturday, October 16 at 2 a.m. to Sunday, October 17 at 5 p.m.

Other activities that will be undertaken during the closures include:
• pavement markings
• RESCU camera maintenance
• repairs to concrete barriers
• catchbasin cleaning to ensure proper drainage
• guide rail and asphalt repair
• pavement evaluation surveys to assess pavement conditions
• expressway sweeping operations and litter removal.

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

Maintenance work on the southbound lanes of the DVP will take place during an overnight closure on one weekend night later in the year. The date for that closure has not been finalized.
