There’s good news for drivers on the Gardiner Expressway. As of yesterday, Sunday November 8th, three lanes are open westbound between Spadina and Dufferin during the daytime hours, including the morning and afternoon rush hour periods.
In a release from the City of Toronto, Mayor John Tory says he’s bringing “a hurry approach to projects across the city to get Toronto moving.” He says “the Gardiner is a major artery of our city and getting lanes of traffic on the Gardiner open earlier will make a real difference in cutting congestion and commute times.”
Until yesterday, construction had reduced traffic to two lanes each way between Spadina and Dufferin.
The road work isn’t finished yet though.
Beginning November 20th to mid-December, weekend and nightly lane closures will result in two lanes of westbound traffic in that area.
