(April 25, 2017) Report from the General Manager, Transportation Services

Summary

The purpose of this report is to seek Council authority to install the following bicycle lanes that were identified as part of the Ten Year Cycling Network Plan adopted in principle by Council in June 2016:

 

-  Bicycle lanes on Renforth Avenue between Eglinton Avenue and Rathburn Drive and
-  Contra-flow bicycle lanes on Denison Avenue and Bellevue Avenue between College Street and Dundas Street West and Wolseley Street, between Augusta Avenue and Denison Avenue.
 

In addition, Council authority is sought to amend the following previous approvals for bicycle lanes:

 

-  Davenport Road to include an eastbound bicycle lane between Spadina Avenue and Madison Avenue, and
-  Waterloo Avenue between Dufferin Street to Gladstone Avenue to amend a westbound contra-flow bicycle lane to an eastbound contra-flow bicycle lane to reflect the recently approved conversion of this section of Waterloo Avenue from an eastbound one-way street to a westbound one-way street.
 

Subject to Council approval, Transportation Services proposes to install the above cycling facilities in 2017.
