What the Gardiner looks like when it's closed for construction

If you've ever walked or driven by the Gardiner Expressway when it's closed for construction, you might have wondered what exactly it is that requires the shutdown of a major artery in Toronto. Most of the time, the highway just looks like it's been abandoned with nary a work crew in sight.

Fortunately, that's not actually the case. While there aren't thousands of maintenance workers dotting the expressway during a closure, a significant amount of work does indeed get done when the Gardiner is closed. To quell some of the curiosity that you might have about the process, the city has made a slick little video detailing what exactly gets done.
