City of Toronto Media Relations has issued the following:

News Release:  October 24, 2014

Overnight lane closures on Gardiner Expressway next week

A series of overnight lane closures will take place on the Gardiner Expressway next week to change the work zone for the structural rehabilitation work that is taking place on three bridges on the at-grade section of the Gardiner Expressway between the Humber River and Park Lawn Avenue.

All of the lane restrictions will take place on the expressway from Park Lawn Road to the South Kingsway from 10 p.m. to 5 a.m., with the exception of Tuesday, October 28, when restrictions will begin at 11 p.m.

• Monday, October 27, all eastbound lanes of the expressway will be closed. Traffic will be diverted to Lake Shore Boulevard at the core/collector separation at Kipling Avenue.
• Tuesday, October 28, one eastbound lane and one westbound lane will be closed, with the closure to start at 11 p.m.
• Wednesday, October 29, two westbound lanes will be closed.
• Thursday, October 30, two westbound lanes will be closed. In addition, the ramp from Lake Shore Boulevard to the westbound Gardiner Expressway at the Humber River will be closed.

To mitigate traffic congestion as a result of the closure, the City of Toronto will be implementing timing changes to traffic signals to enhance traffic flow on nearby routes and will provide real-time traffic information on the City's overhead signs.

This work is part of the City's comprehensive, co-ordinated strategy to rehabilitate and upgrade Toronto's roads, transit and underground infrastructure for current and future needs.
