Heavy traffic expected around campus this weekend due to Highway 403 closure

Heavy traffic is expected around campus this weekend because of a planned closure of a section of Highway 403 for maintenance.

The westbound 403 between Highway 6 and King St. W. will be closed beginning Friday, September 30th at 11 p.m. until Monday, October 3rd, 2022 at 5 a.m. Entrance ramps from Highway 6 to Highway 403, Highway 403 to York Blvd and Highway 403 to Main St. W. will also be closed during this time.

Highway traffic will be detoured along the Queen Elizabeth Way (QEW) using the Lincoln M. Alexander Parkway (LINC). Motorists travelling on the westbound Highway 403 will be detoured onto Highway 6.

Because of the closure and the detouring of vehicles, heavy traffic can be expected along Main St., King St. and the surrounding lower city.

Those travelling through the area, including those taking public transit, are being advised to expect delays.
