I am happy to report that the Argyle Street contra-flow bicycle lanes are now complete from Dovercourt Rd to Gladstone Ave. This lane connects to the Florence street bike lane, as part the City's strategy to better connect Toronto's west end. Parking signage will be updated as parking will no longer seasonally alternate from side to side. The Annette-Dupont-Dundas intersection just to the west of Ward 18 has also been painted to better reflect where the bike lane is for both motorists and cyclists coming into Ward 18. The photo shows the painting in progress.
The City is proposing a pilot project to install bike lanes on Bloor St W between Shaw St and Avenue Rd. This pilot project is an important step in investing in safer and more accessible cycling infrastructure and it will support cycling as a sustainable commuting option to ease our congested urban areas. I am looking forward to working with Ward 18 residents, BIAs, and other stakeholders on the impacts and benefits of bike lanes on Bloor St W. Please take a moment to have your say on the various possible design options for bike lanes that are being considered.
