Drivers, take note: a major downtown intersection is closed to traffic for construction until Monday.

Starting at 6 a.m. on Thursday, the intersection of Yonge Street and Richmond Street West is closed to traffic as crews conduct road work, sidewalk repairs and TTC track replacement.

The closure is scheduled to be in place until 7 a.m. on Monday.

Westbound traffic on Richmond will have to detour at Victoria Street. Motorists heading south on Yonge will be diverted at Queen Street, while northbound traffic will have to turn at Adelaide.
