Getting into and out of downtown Toronto will be a lot more difficult if you’re coming from the north or the east Sunday.
The Don Valley Parkway closes in both directions from the Gardiner Expressway to Highway 401 at 12:01 Sunday morning for regular maintenance. It’s scheduled to stay closed until 5:00 Monday morning.
Crews have a full “to do” list including cleaning catch basins, inspecting and repairing signs and repairing guardrails and lighting. Alternates include Don Mills Road, Bayview Avenue, Victoria Park Avenue and Kingston Road. Or, consider taking the TTC or Go Transit.
Toronto Transportation officials say with plenty of sunshine forecast for Sunday it’s possible the work will get completed ahead of schedule. If that happens, the DVP will reopen before 5:00 am Monday.
