It’s going to be a challenging summer for motorists.
City Councillor Jaye Robinson has announced a long list of road closures that will begin in June.
There are 22 major closures in total. 122 kilometres of road resurfacing work and 238 kilometres of sewer and watermain work will need to be completed in 2016.
The City of Toronto says it is investing more than $550 million in maintaining and upgrading its infrastructure this year.
The closures include Bayview Avenue between the 401 and Steeles Avenue East and Gerrard Street East between Yonge Street and Sherbourne Street.
Robinson says in some cases crews will work around the clock, seven days a week, in order to get the work done as quickly as possible.
There is some good news for drivers.
Robinson says thanks to extra hours, extra crews and extra equipment all lanes on the Gardiner will be re-opened by the end of July instead of October.
Below is a list of some of the major projects set aside for the summer:
-Completing the west deck replacement of the Gardiner Expressway from Jameson Avenue to Spadina Avenue.
