Gardiner Expressway closed overnight this weekend for construction work
The City of Toronto is continuing its construction activities at the Jameson Avenue Bridge over the Gardiner Expressway. To perform this work safely, overnight closures will be required for the Gardiner Expressway between the Don Valley Parkway and the Humber River from Sunday, June 13 to early Monday, June 14.

- The eastbound lanes of the expressway will be closed from Sunday, June 13 at 8 p.m. to Monday, June 14 at 1 a.m.

- The westbound lanes of the expressway will be closed from Sunday, June 13 at 9 p.m. to Monday, June 14 at 5 a.m.

This closure is necessary to reinstate three lanes of traffic on the Gardiner Expressway at the ongoing bridge rehabilitation work in the Jameson Avenue area as well as to continue maintenance work on the elevated section of the roadway.

Motorists can use Lake Shore Boulevard and The Queensway as alternative routes during the closure. Whenever possible, people are encouraged to use public transit as a convenient alternative.
