City closes Gardiner Expressway, GO buses detour tonight



The City of Toronto is closing

  • the westbound lanes of the Frederick G. Gardiner Expressway between Lower Spadina Avenue and the Humber River

from 11 p.m. tonight, Saturday, January 8 until 9 a.m. tomorrow, Sunday, January 9.

Workers continue the ongoing project to replace the bridges across the expressway at Jameson Avenue, while the Gardiner is closed.

GO Transit is detouring some buses operating to and from the Union Station GO Bus Terminal along Lake Shore Boulevard, instead of the Gardiner. However, buses serve all regular stops.

This post describes how GO has detoured buses on other occasions when the City has closed the Gardiner. However, GO Transit Control monitors road conditions and may direct bus drivers to detour along other streets, depending on traffic flow.

18B Hamilton - Union early-morning
18C Hamilton - Union late-night

From 11 p.m. on Saturday, January 8 until 9 a.m. on Sunday January 9, westbound buses start their trips at the Union Station GO Bus Terminal, as usual, then proceed:

southward along Yonge Street; and then
westward along Lake Shore Boulevard West to the Humber River,
resuming their regular route westbound along the Frederick G. Gardiner Expressway.
