The City of Toronto says that they’re “on track” to finish the new Gardiner Expressway ramp by the end of January.

Last year, the city announced it would be replacing the ramp from the eastbound Gardiner Expressway to York, Bay and Yonge Streets with a shorter ramp to Lower Simcoe Street. Originally constructed in 1964, the ramp was in poor condition, according to the City.

Construction began on April 17, 2017, and full closures took place on the eastbound ramp since then.

At the time, the city expected the construction to cost about $30 million.

The project has also widened Harbour Street from three to four lanes of traffic from Lower Simcoe Street to Bay Street.

Although there is no confirmed date at this time, the project is scheduled to end in January, 2018.
