The Ministry of Transportation (MTO) says the Toronto-bound lanes of the Burlington Skyway will reopen tonight between 6 p.m. and 8 p.m. -- just in time for the start of the work week. 

The repairs began after MTO engineers completed a second structural review Saturday night, according to spokesman Astrid Poei. 

Additional repairs will be made over the next two months, adds Poei.
