Don Valley Parkway to close for weekend maintenance

The Don Valley Parkway is closed this weekend for annual spring maintenance.

The roadway will close in both directions between Highway 401 and the Gardiner Expressway starting on Friday at 8 p.m.

It will reopen at 6 a.m. on Sunday in time for the annual Khalsa Parade.

During the closure, crews will patch the asphalt, inspect bridges, clean catch basins and repair guardrails.

The city will change traffic signal timing on nearby routes to help deal with congestion.
