The City of Toronto says four key construction projects will be taking place in the weeks ahead that affect major roads.

A stretch of Richmond Street is being repaired between Church Street and Power Street. Work should be underway shortly and is expected to last nearly three months. The city says two lanes of traffic will be maintained throughout the construction.

Some bridge work is going to shut down a short stretch of Spadina Road between St. Clair Avenue West and Russell Hill Drive. The road’s northbound lanes will stay open, but its southbound lanes will be closed until the work is finished near the end of this year.

In downtown Toronto, crews will soon be resurfacing a portion of Lower Sherbourne Street and adding a bike lane to it. The work is set to begin in October, lasting about eight weeks. A northbound lane of Lower Sherbourne Street will remain closed between Front Street and The Esplanade during this time.

The downtown intersection of Bathurst Street and Dundas Street West will be closed from Nov. 3 to Nov. 20, so that road, sidewalk, water main and TTC track repairs can be made.
