Waterloo-Dufferin School Safety and Cycling Connection Update

As part of the Dufferin-Waterloo school safety and cycling connection improvements, City Council approved the reversal of traffic flow direction on Waterloo Ave to become Westbound-only and the installation of an Eastbound contraflow bike lane between Dufferin St and Gladstone Ave. The new road layout will provide significant safety improvements through the creation of a curbside pickup and drop off zone, enabling students to enter and exit Alexander Muir/Gladstone Ave Public School safely, without having to cross in front of traffic.

In addition to these safety improvements, the new road layout will optimize local cycling infrastructure through a future off-street boulevard connection along Dufferin St between Florence St and Waterloo Ave, which will help to further complete our network of safe cycling infrastructure.
