Gardiner Expressway construction:
One more overnight closure, August 8, 9

Last week, the City of Toronto announced a series of overnight closures on the Frederick G. Gardiner Expressway to change construction staging, as one of three major projects ended.

The City has to close part of the expressway once more this week to eliminate the work zone, shift the traffic lanes and repaint the lines on the roadway.

It will close the westbound lanes of the expressway between Carlaw Avenue and the Humber River from 11 p.m. tonight, Friday, August 8 until 5:30 a.m. tomorrow Saturday, August 9.

Closing the Gardiner affects buses operating along these GO Transit routes to and from the Union Station GO Bus Terminal: 16 Hamilton / Toronto express, 18 Lakeshore West early-morning / late-night, 21 Milton / Toronto, 31 Guelph / Georgetown / Toronto, 65 Newmarket / Toronto, 71 Stouffville / Toronto and 90 Lakeshore East early-morning / late-night.

GO is likely detouring the buses along Lake Shore Boulevard, instead of the Gardiner, but the buses serve all regular stops. However, GO Transit Control monitors road conditions and may direct bus drivers to detour along other streets, depending on traffic flow.
