A small victory for Toronto drivers as summer road work hits top gear.

Northbound lanes of Allen Road, one of the main exit-routes on the drive out to the city's suburbs, will remain open while crews build the Eglinton Crosstown LRT.

There was discussion at Metrolinx, the provincial transit authority in charge of the project, about closing the northbound run between Eglinton and Lawrence Avenues.

Now, Metrolinx says that stretch will remain open for the duration of the project but it will be very congested.  

Once the tunneling starts in the area next year, 150 trucks a day will be in the area removing oil from the LRT tunnel.
