Gardiner Rehabilitation Work

Steeles Ave. E. is only open one lane along Steeles Ave. E. in the area of Reesor Rd. until May 2014 in order to conduct much needed bridge rehabilitation. While the closure is being controlled through temporary traffic signals to allow two-way traffic flow in sequence, traffic volumes exceed capacity so severe congestion can be expected. Motorists should take alternate routes such as Highway 7, Highway 407, 14th Avenue in Markham, Kingston Rd. or Highway 401 in planning their trips until the bridge work is completed.
