High Park Restoration Site Maintenance

Sunday, August 23, 2015, 10:30 am to 12:30 pm Grenadier Restaurant, Colbourne Lodge Drive and Centre Road, Toronto, ON

Maintenance, aka “weeding,” is as important as planting and equally rewarding. Once the weeds are removed, the native plants have room to grow, display their beauty, and provide food and shelter for wildlife.

Meet us in front of the Grenadier Restaurant at 10:30 am, and we will direct you to the site. Tools, vests, and gloves will be provided.

Gardiner Expressway Construction Resumes

Posted on August 19, 2015

Gardiner Expressway construction work resumes August 19

The work to replace the deck on the Gardiner Expressway, from Strachan Avenue to just west of Bathurst Street, resumes August 19.

While this work is taking place, two lanes of traffic in each direction will be open. The work is expected to be completed October 31, 2016.

While this work is taking place, the City is taking steps to minimize disruption to the travelling public, including implementing traffic signal timing changes to enhance traffic flow on nearby routes and working to plan improved co-ordination and response to incidents on the Gardiner Expressway

In addition, the daily closure of the westbound ramp from Jameson Avenue to the Gardiner Expressway will be temporarily suspended during the construction period.   When the construction work is completed, the normal closure on weekdays from 3 p.m. to 7 p.m. will be reinstated in order to enhance driver safety and reduce congestion.

Drivers who use this route should consider options such as carpooling, taking transit, cycling to work, or travelling outside the usual rush hours.

The City has a web-based map to help residents and visitors make their travel plans, available at http://www.toronto.ca/roadrestrictions. Information about the City’s planned capital construction work, which also affects roads, is available at http://www.toronto.ca/inview.
