As the old saying goes, there are two seasons in Canada. Winter and roadwork.

Get ready for the latter.

The City of Toronto has released a list of roads they will be focusing on this summer, as we brace for the 2015 Pan Am Games.

Public Works chair Denzil Minnan-Wong says this summer is going to be busier than normal, so that traffic can move smoothly while the games are on.

When it comes to all the pot holes, he admits the asphalt the city has been using for years, may not be as good as it could be.

He says we obviously have a problem in Toronto, so they are now going to look at other cities to figure out how to build better roads.

Here's the full list:

Markham Rd from Kingston to Lawrence - July to Dec

Lawrence Ave E from Kingston to Markham - mid May to Early Nov

Victoria Park Ave from Eglinton to Lawrence - June to Oct

Wilson Ave from Bathurst to Dufferin - completed by Nov

Transit Road from the Allen to Wilson - completed by Nov

Finch Ave W from Dufferin to Signet - June to Dec

Finch Ave W from Kipling to Hwy 427 - Late June to Aug

Kipling from Bloor to Dixon - June to Nov

Parkside Dr from Lakeshore to Bloor - Aug to late Nov

Queen's Park Cres from College to Bloor - June to Nov

Wellesley St. W from Yonge to Hart House Circle - June to late Nov
