The City of Toronto is moving forward with reconstruction of the Scarlett Road Bridge and the intersection of Scarlett Road, St. Clair Avenue West and Dundas Street West. Final design work is nearing completion and construction is expected to start in late 2023. The required utility work around the bridge in advance of the start of construction will begin this year and will continue into mid-2023.
In 2008, the City completed a study to address the safety and traffic operations in the area around the Scarlett Road Bridge. The study recommended making changes to the bridge and surroundings roads in order to improve the road capacity and reduce congestion.
In late 2017, the City began work on detailed designs for the reconstruction of the bridge and the intersection of Scarlett Road with Dundas Street West and St. Clair Avenue West.
Planned work includes:
