The Gardiner Expressway and Don Valley Parkway will close for a triathlon July 22, city council has decided.
The expressways are needed to stage the 40-kilometre bike ride of the Ironman event, which also includes a 10-kilometre off-road run and 1.5-kilometre Lake Ontario swim.
About 1,000 athletes are expected to participate.
Council was told that 11,000 motorists will be affected because that’s the normal traffic level during the 10-hour period on Sunday, July 22.
Council voted 29-9 to accommodate the event.
