A road classification system designates streets into different groups or classes according to the type of service each group is intended to provide. This is a fundamental tool for urban development and road management. Grouping roads with similar functions can improve transportation planning, road infrastructure design, maintenance, traffic and road operations.
Every street owned by the City of Toronto has been given one of five classifications (with the exception of public laneways).
Adelaide Street (from Jarvis Street to Parliament Street) Road Resurfacing and Watermain Replacement
Breadalbane Street (from Yonge Street to Bay Street) Watermain Replacement
Colborne Street (from Yonge Street to Church Street) Watermain Replacement
