Decision Advice and Other Information

The Public Works and Infrastructure Committee agreed to consider Items PW12.1, PW12.2, PW12.3 and PW12.15 together.

Origin

(March 30, 2016) Report from the General Manager, Transportation Services

Summary

The purpose of this report is to seek Council authority to install cycle tracks along Bloor Street as a pilot project for implementation and subsequent evaluation. Subject to Council approval, Transportation Services proposes to install the pilot project in late summer 2016.

 

A pilot project installation of cycle tracks along Bloor Street would provide an opportunity to evaluate the impacts and benefits of cycling infrastructure on this street and make adjustments, as necessary, to the design and operations of the pilot project configuration.

 

Transportation Services has recently completed a preliminary feasibility study to identify design options and associated impacts for bikeways along Bloor Street West between Shaw Street and Avenue Road, including the potential implementation of a cycling facility as a pilot project.

 

As part of the feasibility study, various design options were considered and a summary of the considerations are presented in this report.  Based on a review of design considerations and feedback from the public and stakeholders, the cycling facility is generally proposed as a cycle track, which features separation elements (a painted buffer, parked cars and/or flexi-post bollards) between the bicycle lane and the traffic lane, as well as between the bicycle lane and on-street parking.

 

The outcomes of the pilot project would help inform the development of future projects along Bloor Street such as upcoming planned roadwork, as well as a Major Corridor Study for cycling facilities along a longer segment of Bloor Street.  

 

Transportation Services proposes to report back to the Public Works and Infrastructure Committee in the third quarter of 2017 on the findings of the Bloor Street West pilot project evaluation.
