Construction/Road Closures

Gardiner Lane Closures Begin Mar 25

Beginning March 25, lane closures on the Gardiner Expressway will be implemented between Dufferin and Strachan for pre-construction work. The work will occur in stages, impacting one lane in each direction at a time, starting with the eastbound lanes.  

During the eastbound lane closure, the eastbound on-ramp from Lakeshore Blvd, east of Jameson, will also be closed to facilitate this work. Intermittent additional nightly lane reductions will also occur.   

There are no lane restrictions planned over the March long weekend (Friday, March 29 to Sunday, March 31) or Saturday, April 6 to Monday, April 8. 

Starting in mid-April, the Gardiner will be reduced to two lanes in each direction between Dufferin Street and Strachan Avenue, with intermittent additional nighty lane reductions as necessary. More details are available on the City’s website here.


Gardiner Lane Closures Coming in March

The City of Toronto announced that the Gardiner Expressway will be reduced to two lanes in each direction between Dufferin Street and Strachan Avenue for three years, beginning late March. This is part of the city’s six-part Strategic Rehabilitation Plan that was approved by council in 2016.

This stretch of the Gardiner is very close to Exhibition Place and the city says they are working with the appropriate groups to coordinate around major events such as the Honda Indy and the CNE. The closure will also coincide with the FIFA World Cup tournament. The city says the lane restrictions will be lifted for three months from May to July in order to accommodate the games.

Pedestrians will continue to have access to the GO Station and the city will be working with Metrolinx to avoid disruptions. City staff did warn that there will be significant traffic impacts and that the project will create some noise. Public notices and community meetings are expected to take place in the near future to inform residents.
