Origin

(April 19, 2024) Report from the General Manager, Transportation Services

Summary

With Metrolinx's construction of the Eglinton Crosstown Light Rail Transit nearing completion, Transportation Services has been preparing to complete roadway resurfacing of the Eglinton Avenue corridor, including the installation of the eglintonTOday Complete Street Project between Bicknell Avenue and Mount Pleasant Road - marking the end of over a decade of construction.

 

The City-Council endorsed Eglinton Connects plan articulates a vision for Eglinton Avenue as a complete street with wide sidewalks, raised bikeways, motor vehicle parking and rapid transit, and is aligned with the City's Vision Zero Road Safety Plan, TransformTO Net Zero Strategy and Cycling Network Plan policy goals.

 

The eglintonTOday project seeks to build on the transit investment in order to achieve key elements of the Eglinton Connects vision. The project design was developed with two years of public, business, and resident group feedback, extensive traffic analysis, and a context-sensitive approach making the street safer, more inviting, and attractive, while maintaining access for people who drive.

 

As part of this project, three north-south local bikeways connecting Eglinton Avenue and nearby trails are proposed on Croham Road, Glen Cedar Road, and Jimmy Wisdom Way.

 

The purpose of this report is to seek Council authority to install 8.06 centreline kilometres of new complete street features including bikeways along with the resurfacing of Eglinton Avenue. The proposed bikeways will close the gaps between the existing disconnected cycle tracks built at the frontages of 9 above-ground Eglinton Crosstown Light Rail Transit stations, and west of Bicknell Avenue and between Avenue Road and Holly Street, and provide connecting local cycling routes, on the following streets:

 

- Eglinton Avenue: Bicknell Avenue to Mount Pleasant Road (cycle tracks, Wards 5, 8, 9, and 12)

 

- Croham Road: Eglinton Avenue West to Bowie Avenue (contra-flow bike lanes, Ward 8)

 

- Glen Cedar Road: Eglinton Avenue West to Dewbourne Avenue (contra-flow bike lanes, Ward 12)

 

- Jimmy Wisdom Way: Eglinton Avenue West to Hopewell Avenue (bicycle lanes and contra-flow bike lanes, Ward 8)

 

The project proposes to implement complete street features including cycle tracks, curb extensions, pedestrian head start signals, and public realm upgrades on Eglinton Avenue between Bicknell Avenue and Mount Pleasant Road by reassigning some of the existing vehicular space to accommodate parking, bikeways, seasonal patio extensions, and other complete street features, and to fit within the existing curb to curb space:

 

- Between Keele Street and Caledonia Road, two westbound motor vehicle lanes and one eastbound motor vehicle lane are proposed to be maintained, generally with on-street parking on one side.

 

- Between Caledonia Road and Oakwood Avenue, one motor vehicle lane in each direction are proposed to be maintained with parking on both sides.

 

- Between Oakwood Avenue and Spadina Road, two westbound and two eastbound motor vehicle lanes are proposed to be maintained in the peak hours, with off-peak parking allowed in both curb lanes.

 

- Between Spadina Road and Mount Pleasant Road, one westbound and one eastbound motor vehicle lane with parking on one side is proposed to be maintained to match the Metrolinx delivered section between Yonge Street and Avenue Road.

 

If the continuous cycle tracks are not approved for installation, Transportation Services would recommend that the short segments of disconnected cycle tracks already built in front of the underground stations be closed. Without connecting bikeways, these short segments have limited utility for people cycling and would require people cycling to merge in and out of higher speed motor vehicle lanes, resulting in safety issues and confusion around where people cycling should be on the road.   

 

Subject to approval from Council, Transportation Services would implement the complete street project between Bicknell Avenue and Mount Pleasant Road starting in summer 2024, in conjunction with road resurfacing, sidewalk repair, and TTC bus stop changes to prepare for the opening of the Eglinton Crosstown Light Rail Transit.

 

In the vicinity of the Eglinton Avenue and Allen Road intersection, the complete street project for the section between Old Park Road / Glen Cedar Road and Marlee Avenue would be implemented only after adjustments are made to improve traffic operations at the intersection.

 

There are five Business Improvement Areas within the project limits. The Business Improvement Areas are at the initial stages of planning for near term streetscape enhancements. Business Improvement Area streetscape plans will identify elements such as parkettes, gateway features, enhanced pedestrian infrastructure, green infrastructure, street furniture, lighting, activation strategies, branding opportunities, bicycle parking and maintenance and management guidelines. 

 

Transportation Services has identified funding to support the delivery of the Business Improvement Areas' key streetscape enhancement projects and has committed to leading a multi-divisional team to leverage resources and identify opportunities to implement elements of the Business Improvement Area streetscape plans. Given the time required for the Business Improvement Areas to complete streetscape plans, design, and construction tendering, delivery of priority streetscape enhancements is anticipated to begin at the earliest in 2026.

 

As part of this report, Transportation Services is continuing to utilize the streamlined reporting process for by-law amendment submissions associated with cycling infrastructure projects approved by Council for implementation. Once projects are approved by Council, the streamlined process involves delegation of authority to submit bills directly to Council for a discreet period of time (approximately two years after project implementation is anticipated) which enables Transportation Services to make minor adjustments to constructed conditions without delay and based on local Councillor and public feedback, such as parking adjustments to improve sightlines, adjustments or addition of accessible loading areas, and similar modifications.

 

It is proposed that later in 2024, Transportation Services would begin the design and public consultation on the second phase of the eglintonTOday project between Mount Pleasant Road and Brentcliffe Road, with a report to Infrastructure and Environment Committee on recommendations for Phase 2 anticipated in 2025.
