Gardiner Expressway closure on weekend for emergency snow removal, other maintenance activities|
| || ||
Snow removal and a number of maintenance activities will require the closure of
some parts of the Gardiner Expressway this weekend.
Eastbound traffic will be unable to use the Gardiner Expressway from Parklawn
Road to Carlaw Avenue on Sunday, March 6 from 12:01 a.m. until noon. In
addition, westbound traffic will be unable to use the Gardiner Expressway, from
Carlaw Avenue to the Humber River.
All lanes of traffic in both directions will be re-opened at noon.
In addition to removing snow, a number of other maintenance activities will
take place during this closure including:
- maintenance work on streetlights
- installation of a changeable message sign at Grand Avenue
- road surface repairs including pothole repairs
- sign maintenance.
"We apologize for any inconvenience as a result of this closure," said Roberto
Stopnicki, Acting General Manager, Transportation Services. "However, it is
important that we remove snow from areas where safety might be affected, and
this work will be combined with other necessary maintenance as well."
Motorists can use Lake Shore Boulevard as an alternative to the Gardiner
Expressway during the closures. Whenever possible, the public is encouraged to
consider using public transit as a convenient alternative.

Services' Road Info line at 416-599-9090 or visit the City's Web site at www.toronto.ca/transportation.
