Drivers beware, we're about a month away from the start of what could be major slowdowns on the Gardiner.

On April 25th the Gardiner shuts down for spring maintenance and when it re-opens, three new construction projects will be underway. That will mean the loss of one lane of traffic in each direction in sections from Park Lawn to Bathurst.

The city will be rehabilitating three bridges near the Humber River, replacing the median from the start of High Park to Dufferin, and spending 70 million dollars to replace the elevated deck from the CNE to Bathurst and demolish a bridge underneath the Gardiner.

The median work is expected to be done by August, the bridge work December, but the deck replacement won't be done until December of 2016 (with a two month break for the Pan AM Games).

The city says it will do everything possible to minimize the disruption, including coordinating traffic signals on alternate routes and working to make sure those roads are free of other construction projects.
