Gardiner Expressway Improvement Work Begins in Mid-April
  
Work to renew the physical condition of the Gardiner Expressway, between York
Street and Jarvis Street, will begin April 14 and continue until October, 2000.

In preparation for the first phase of construction, the Gardiner Expressway
will be closed in both directions (all lanes) from the Humber River to Leslie
Street from 11:00 p.m. Friday, April 14 to 6:00 a.m. Monday, April 17.

Beginning April 17, lane restrictions will be in effect throughout the duration
of the construction period.

During all phases of construction, the westbound Gardiner Expressway on-ramp at
Jarvis Street will be closed. As an alternative, both the westbound York
Street and Spadina Avenue on-ramps will remain open.

In addition, the eastbound Gardiner Expressway on-ramp at Rees Street will be
closed for the first three stages of construction. During this time, the
eastbound Gardiner Expressway on-ramp at Bay Street will be open.

"The work is being undertaken to ensure safe and comfortable travel conditions
on the Gardiner Expressway and to protect the long-term value of the city's
transportation assets," says David Kaufman, General Manager, Transportation
Services, Works and Emergency Services.

Alternative traffic routes, such as Lake Shore Boulevard, are available and the
public is encouraged to consider public transit (TTC and GO) as a convenient
alternative choice.
