Construction work has begun at the intersection of Dundas St. West and Spadina Ave. on July 15 2014. Traffic lanes have been reduced to single lanes in all directions and busses are running on the Spadina route instead of streetcars. As well as water main repairs, streetcar tracks will be replaced with work expected to be complete by the end of August of this year. (Fred Lum/The Globe and Mail)

Interactive map: Tracking Toronto's ongoing construction Add to ...

 

It seems that everywhere you look in Toronto, the roads are under construction. Some of the work, like the soon-to-be shut down Spadina and Dundas intersection, will take a few weeks. But other nightmares – read: the Gardiner Expressway – are ongoing and won’t be completed for months or years. Here, we take a look at all current roadwork on major streets, based on details released by the city last week.

5. This weekend

The Honda Indy car-racing event is running through the weekend, which means some road closures by the waterfront. Strachan Avenue will be closed between Fleet Street and the Lake Shore until midnight Sunday. Same goes for the Lake Shore, which will be closed from Strachan to British Columbia Drive.
