Construction work on Don Mills Road Bridge to restrict Don Valley Parkway lanes overnight

Construction road sign

Starting Tuesday, September 5, the City of Toronto will undertake overnight planned construction on the Don Mills Road Bridge over the Don Valley Parkway (DVP), to provide structural maintenance of the bridge thereby prolonging its lifespan.

To complete the work safely, there will be nightly traffic restrictions on the DVP near Don Mills Road. The City is committed to planning construction in a way that minimizes the disruption to the public as much as possible and is why work is being done overnight when traffic volumes are lower.

The restrictions will be in place from 11 p.m. to 6 a.m., Monday to Friday, and 11 p.m. to 9 a.m., Saturday and Sunday.

From Tuesday, September 5 until Friday, November 3, the following overnight restrictions will be in effect:
• southbound and northbound DVP will be reduced to one or two lanes
• southbound off-ramp to southbound Don Mills Road will be closed
• southbound DVP on-ramp from northbound Don Mills Road will be closed
• northbound DVP off-ramp to northbound Don Mills Road will be closed periodically

This work involves cleaning and coating the structural steel on the bridge, which will help protect the structure from corrosion, prevent costly repairs and extend its service life.

During construction, people travelling in the area should consider alternate routes and allow extra time to get to and from their destinations.

Full details of this work are available on the City’s website:
