The crews put the pedal to the asphalt and with the help of two additional crews and closing all lanes briefly overnight, the work was completed 2 months ahead of schedule!

Lane restrictions on Parliament Street for road construction

Beginning May 23 through early July, Parliament Street will be reduced to one lane in each direction from Bloor Street to Wellesley Street for road resurfacing work.

To shorten the duration of the project and help minimize disruption to the public, work on the project will take place Monday through Saturday from 7 a.m. to 11 p.m. There will be occasional work that will take place after hours and on Sundays.

To help manage traffic in the area, enhanced signage will be used to inform drivers of the road closure.
