There will be impacts to the road network to include temporary lane restrictions and partial closure of intersections to prepare for long-term construction operations. Where possible, minor construction activities may be scheduled during off-peak, weekend or overnight hours to minimize disruptions to traffic.

The SRT will be shut down in 2023. The TTC is currently evaluating their options and they plan to present some recommendations to their board in 2022. We’re committed to staying updated as the TTC’s plans develop, to ensure we can have the necessary resources and provide the same level of service.
