News Release - April 11, 2014: Weekend event with road closures in Toronto

Expressway and Major Route closures http://www.toronto.ca/transportation/road_info/

Note: The calendar for street events will not include road closures due to filming. For information on current film production in Toronto see: Current film productions in Toronto - film shoots

Steeles Avenue East and Reesor Road: 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.

Gardiner Expressway - Brown's Line ramp closure: This is a Ministry of Transportation project, see: Road closures and construction on provincial highways

Gardiner Expressway - Jameson Ramp - The Jameson Gate to the westbound Gardiner Expressway is closed from 3:00 pm to 6:00 pm, Monday to Friday.

The gate can also be closed by Toronto Police at any time during an emergency situation or special event when the Police do not want traffic to enter the expressway at this ramp. For example, this can happen if there is a collision on the expressway or after a night event at the BMO Field.


Construction resulting in road restrictions:
