Drivers will be pleased to hear that roadwork season has begun.
According to Councillor Denzil Minnan-Wong, chair of the Public Works and Infrastructure Committee, more than $140 million will be spent on road and bridge improvements this spring and summer.
"We must continue to ensure that work is coordinated in order to minimize disruptions to the public," Minnan-Wong
said, providing cold comfort to people taking the roughly five million car trips a day around the GTA.
The city lists the areas of major work as Spadina Avenue from Bremner Boulevard to King Street West, Danforth Road from Midland Avenue to McCowan Road, Burnhamthorpe Road from Martin Grove Road to The East Mall, Finch Avenue from Bayview Avenue to the Don River, and Wilson Avenue from Dufferin Street to Keele Street.
The city also took the opportunity to announce that on average, it has filled 225,000 potholes each year for the past three years.
