The city of Toronto is warning drivers of upcoming road work ahead, which will include roadblocks and the removal of ramps at Logan Avenue off the Gardiner Expressway.
According to a statement from the city, Tuesday at. 21.00 will no longer be able to use the ramp and will be forced to find alternative routes.
The statement added that Lake Shore Boulevard East will be closed between Cherry Street and Carlaw Avenue on the weekends beginning September 4th. Don Roadway will also be closed between Don Valley Parkway and Commissioners Street. The closures were scheduled to last until November.

Drivers wishing to access the westbound Gardiner Expressway must take Jarvis Street. The DVP can be accessed via the Eastern Avenue or Queen Street ramps during closing.
The decision to remove the Logan Avenue ramp is part of a joint project with Waterfront Toronto to redesign and expand the Lake Shore Bridge as part of a broader redesign of the Gardiner Expressway.
Crews will also reconstruct the area between Don Roadway and Carlaw Avenue, and footbridges, bike paths and a new park will be added.

Residents in the area were warned to prepare for noise and dust while crews work to reconstruct the bridge.
The construction project, which is expected to last until 2024, was approved by the Toronto City Council in 2016.
Under Port Land’s flood protection project, which is also underway, there will be a redesign of the bottom of the Don River.
In an attempt to mitigate potential transport-related delays, officials said traffic signal timing will be adjusted.
