Traffic Woes To Worsen Through The Summer

The Gardiner Expressway has reopened after its annual spring maintenance, but lane restrictions continue and traffic will only get worse.

For the next few weeks, one lane will be closed in each direction near Jameson Avenue for the reconstruction of three bridges in the area.

And beginning early next week, the only major alternate, Lake Shore Blvd., will be under construction from east of Jameson to British Columbia Dr. as three temporary lanes are built.

Both the Gardiner and Lake Shore Blvd. will likely be affected when the G8 Summit comes to town at the end of June. Road closures will be posted here when available.

Factor in the Ride for Heart next month, the Honda Indy in July and Caribana in August, and it may make more sense to ditch the car this summer and hop on public transit.
