There’s good news for motorists who travel along the eastbound Gardiner Expressway during the morning rush hour, as the City of Toronto is getting set to unveil the new York-Bay-Yonge exit, which allows commuters access to the downtown core.
The new exit will be made available to traffic on Sunday afternoon following a ribbon-cutting ceremony at the foot of Lower Simcoe near Harbour Street. Mayor John Tory will be attending the event, which is scheduled for 2:30 p.m.
The York-Bay-Yonge exit was closed for close to a year with motorists dealing with delays on the eastbound side of the Gardiner Expressway over the course of nine months.
Thousands of people travel along the Gardiner Expressway on a daily basis and as a result, the eastbound off-ramp to Jarvis Street was heavily backed up since it was the only eastbound exit to the downtown core.
The new York-Bay-Yonge exit will provide much needed relief for motorists once the morning commute begins on Monday.
