417 Eastbound Maitland on/off ramps to close May 13

As the 417 widening project continues, the Maitland Eastbound on and off ramps will close Monday morning, May 13 before rush hour. The MTO anticipates the closure will be in effect for two weeks.

In order to avoid additional congestion at the intersection of Carling and Maitland (the current detour for the Carling Ave WB off-ramp closure), the MTO and the city have decided on a new detour which will see northbound Maitland traffic detoured to Carling Avenue via Woodward Drive.
