Provide your inputs on needs and priorities for Avenue Road by completing the online survey.  The survey closes May 29, 2022.

The City of Toronto is studying Avenue Road, between Bloor Street West and St. Clair Avenue West, to find opportunities to improve the street with emphasis on safety, mobility choices, and enhancing streetscape. Streets are places where everyone should feel safe, comfortable and connected.

The Avenue Road Study will look at options for using the space available to best serve all road users. The study will take into consideration the impact of potential changes on the city-wide road network and adjacent local streets.

Throughout the study and in consultation with the community, the City will determine what changes can be implemented in the short to medium term, in advance of full reconstruction of the road.

With full reconstruction of Avenue Road currently forecasted to take place more than ten years from now, implementing short to medium term improvements will allow the City to monitor change and help inform a future study to determine major, permanent design changes.

The study area is Avenue Road from Bloor Street on the south to St. Clair Avenue West on the north.

Potential Changes

A range of options will be considered to improve safety, mobility choices and streetscape on Avenue Road. Changes could include:

  • Increased pedestrian space
  • Reduced speed limits and/or number of motor vehicle lanes
  • New cycling facilities and/or improved wayfinding to alternative routes
  • Improved connections to adjacent public spaces and key local destinations
  • New street furniture, green infrastructure and patios
  • Modifications to on-street pick up and drop off areas and short term parking
  • Other ideas and suggestions arising from the study

The participation of road users, local community members and other stakeholders in the study is essential to identifying appropriate and effective improvements for Avenue Road.

We are currently in Phase One which builds on the outcomes of the 2019 Avenue Road Safety Review and takes into consideration feedback received through a variety of channels including 311 and emails to local councillors. The Phase One survey will allow city staff to confirm what has been heard and facilitate new inputs from the public.
