Yesterday, the city of Toronto released an ambitious plan for its Summer construction season. For Torontonians who commute on a daily basis, the summer season brings plenty Road closures and alternate routes. The city of Toronto is scheduled to complete over 122 kilometres of resurfacing work this summer along with 238 kilometres worth of water main and sewer work. The city released a list of 22 major routes expected to be affected by construction. Today, we list the 10 most significant streets expected to be closed at some point this summer.
For those living in the north end of the city, Bayview Avenue is expected to be resurfaced from Steeles Ave to just south of the Highway 401. If you live in this area, you may want to look at alternate routes for the summer because there will be plenty of traffic in the region.
For those who live in Scarborough and the east-end of Toronto, Warden Avenue will be resurfaced from Sheppard Ave. to Steeles Ave. Alternate routes will be required for those who travel to this side of the city, perhaps take Kennedy road instead.
Martin Grove Road
Martin Grove Road is expected to undergo a major resurfacing stage as Finch Ave to north of the 409 is expected to be upgraded. For those who live or work in the west-end of the city, this will create plenty of congestion in the area.
For those who live in Leslieville or the east end of the city, Gerrard Street between Yonge St. and Sherbourne St. will be closed at some point this summer due to general road work and water main work.
Don Mills Road
For Torontonians who love to shop at The Shops at Don Mills, plan ahead this summer because Don Mills Road will be resurfaced from Lawrence Ave. to York Mills road. There is plenty of traffic in this area due to the shopping centre therefore it’s best to map out an alternate route for the summer.
For those of you who live and work in downtown Toronto, beware of College Street as it’s expected to undergo a major transformation. Between Bathurst St. and Lansdowne Ave, College Street will undergo road repairs, sidewalk repairs and track replacement via the TTC
Another downtown street to avoid this summer is Richmond Street, from Church St. to York St. The TTC is planning major track replacements for this stretch along with resurfacing and water main work.
One of the busiest streets in Canada is about to undergo major construction. Queen St. between Bathurst St and Spadina Ave. will be affected due to Water Main Replacement.
Lake Shore Boulevard
For those of you who like to get active and run along Lake Shore Boulevard, be aware that between Dwight Ave. and Superior Ave. Lake Shore Boulevard will be replacing sewers, creating congestion in the area.
Another north end area of the city on our list, Finch Ave at Highway 27 is expected to undergo water main replacement, created congestion in a very busy part of the city.
