    I just road signs posted for the closure of Leslie St from 19th Line to Stouffville Road from July 16th to 2019. Don't know if this affects many TBN routes as they usually turn east at 19th anyway. I certainly hope this doesn't affect access for 19th line across Leslie, I'm using that route often now that the bridge over 404 is done.

    So much construction lately!

    Thanks for this. The prep work to realign 19th ave to eliminate the jog has been underway this spring. Some widening of Leslie north of 19th has already happened to accommodate future left turn lanes. Once the new signaled intersection is complete, Leslie will be widened to four plus lanes from 19th to Elgin Mills. Based on how long it is taking to get 19th and Bayview sorted, this could take awhile.

    *Edit: Of greater significance is the planned closure (as of this week) of Warden Ave between Herald Rd and Mt Albert Rd for bridge rehab. That is going to mess up a lot of standard training rides into October. The detour along Herald and up Kennedy isn't going to be to everyone's liking!
