Stage 1 repair work on Don Mills bridge over DVP wraps 2 weeks early

Construction crews leave the DVP after stage 1 repairs on the Don Mills bridge ends two weeks early, Aug. 7, 2019. 680 NEWS TRAFFIC

The drive down the Don Valley Parkway should be a little smoother on Wednesday after work on the Don Mills bridge wrapped up early.

Crews completed stage 1 work on the bridge two weeks ahead of schedule.

Lane restrictions were taken down around 3 a.m.

City officials say restrictions will shift on Thursday so that crews can begin phase 2 of the project — meaning the shoulders of the DVP at Don Mills will be closed.

The southbound DVP on-ramp from northbound Don Mills will also be closed until the project is finished in October.

Repair work on four DVP bridges — Don Mills, Spanbridge, Wynford and Lawrence — began in July.

City officials said crews are working to make sure the bridges meet standards and stay safe for vehicles and pedestrians.
