City of Toronto: York Street On Ramp to Gardiner Expressway

City of Toronto Pre-Construction Notice: York St. On Ramp to Gardiner Expressway


The project is set to start in June 2024 and aims to be completed by early 2025.

Traffic impacts:

Both lanes of the on-ramp will be kept open during most of the project. 

One weekend and a few overnight closures will be necessary for safety and to ensure the quality of the work. These closures will be carefully scheduled to avoid conflicts with major city events and other traffic restrictions.

Background and overview of the work:

The York Street on-ramp, originally constructed in 1963, was last rehabilitated in 1990 and requires an immediate rehabilitation. The work will include comprehensive repairs to the bridge’s substructure and superstructure.

Construction notification:

Attached is a Pre-Construction Notice that provides an initial overview of the project. A more detailed Construction Notice will be distributed a few weeks before the start of the project. We will also provide advance notice for all night and weekend closures to ensure you are well-informed and can plan accordingly. Other westbound access ramps to the Gardiner Expressway, including those at Spadina Avenue and Jarvis Street, will remain open during this period.
