If you use the Gardiner Expressway daily, you'll notice some major changes starting Monday. 

The city will begin setting up for three major construction projects with lane closures expected to be in place fully by Thursday.

That work will mean the loss of one lane of traffic in each direction in sections of the Gardiner Expressway 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 St., and spending $70-million to replace the elevated deck from the CNE to Bathurst St. and demolish a bridge underneath the Gardiner.

The median work is expected to be done by August and 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.
