Over the last few weeks, I have been working with many of you to address traffic challenges and safety concerns in our community created by constructions closures. I am pleased to let you know that the TTC work at the College Street and Dundas Street West intersection has reached substantial completion. We hope that with these lanes opening up again, the situation will be significantly improved. If you still have concerns please let me know.
While this construction brought challenges, there are also important benefits. We have made the intersection safer for pedestrians, cyclists and drivers by adding a traffic light, extending crosswalk curbs for safer crossings, and created a bike box to protect cyclists waiting to turn left with the signalized left turn. This work was done in conjunction with the TTC work to avoid additional closures.
As there is still minor work ongoing at Dundas Street West and College Street, you may see some individual lane closures in the coming days, but there are no further full lane closures expected.
Streetcar service has resumed on Dundas, with buses running on College Street until January.
