TORONTO — The Gardiner Expressway westbound Yonge-Bay-York off-ramp will be closed until Sept. 16 for extensive repairs in the first phase of work to rehabilitate the expressway between Jarvis and Cherry Streets in downtown Toronto.
To complete the work as quickly as possible, crews will work mostly around-the-clock on a 24/7 basis, explains a city release issued July 4, adding the majority of the most disruptive work should be completed by 11 p.m.
However, in some instances disruptive work must be performed overnight for the safety of crews and the travelling public.
Furthermore, the westbound on-ramp at Jarvis Street that runs underneath the westbound Yonge-Bay-York off-ramp will be closed until July 31 to complete the construction safely, adds the release.
The rehabilitation work is the first project of the Gardiner Expressway Strategic Rehabilitation Plan, which addresses the immediate and long-term rehabilitation needs of the entire expressway, from Highway 427 to the Don Valley Parkway.
In addition to the off-ramp work, there will be construction on the Gardiner Expressway between Jarvis and Cherry Streets this year. More details are expected later this summer.
