The City of Toronto is taking a proactive approach to managing the rehabilitation of the Gardiner to keep the roadway in safe and operable condition. City staff have evaluated the procurement options and are recommending an AFP approach to rehabilitate the Gardiner in the most efficient way for Toronto residents and businesses.
The proposed plan addresses the rehabilitation of the expressway, extending from Highway 427 to the eastern limit at Logan Avenue, including the 11-kilometre at-grade section from Highway 427 to Dufferin Street with its 32 bridges and structures, and the seven-kilometre elevated section from Dufferin Street to Logan Avenue with 335 spans. It incorporates the change of scope for the rehabilitation of the Gardiner Expressway east of Jarvis Street based on the future outcome of the environmental assessment.
In June 2018, a $308.5-million contract for Phase 1 of the project between Cherry Street and Jarvis Street. Construction began on this section of the project in 2019, and is expected to be completed in early 2021.
