Kennedy Closures: Details and detours you need to know

Traffic congestion on the Kennedy Expressway is about to get more complicated.

The 55-year-old Ontario Bridge will be torn down and transportation officials say it’s going to be ugly even if a lot of drivers stay away from the construction zone.

Businesses are concerned that a major artery into the city will be cut down into only two lanes.

The lanes will be closed for three weekends beginning on Friday.

Transportation officials and business owners are urging Kennedy travelers to stay off the road and take mass transit into the city.
