The Don Valley Parkway (DVP) will be partially closed this weekend from 12:01 a.m. on Saturday, August 24 until 5 a.m. on Monday, August 26. The following DVP sections, ramps and lanes will be closed:
- all northbound lanes on the DVP from Lake Shore Boulevard East to the Dundas Street East on-ramp
- the five on-ramps leading to northbound DVP from the Gardiner Expressway, Don Roadway, Eastern Avenue, Queen Street East and Dundas Street East
- approximately 500 metres of the southbound lane immediately adjacent to the work zone near the Dundas Street East on-ramp (all other southbound lanes will remain open).
These closures are needed to finish critical work that was not completed during the previous closure in May due to rain, which prevented the culvert replacement. A full closure is required for the safety of the public and the workers.
The City manages the maintenance and inspection of three expressways: the F. G Gardiner Expressway, the Don Valley Parkway and the Allen Road Expressway.
