To help inform the design of the project, the City is looking to understand the loading demands and requirements of businesses and buildings located on Bloor Street West within the project area (Runnymede Road to Resurrection Road). The City recognizes that spaces for loading and deliveries are critical for the operation of businesses and organizations.
The City is inviting business operators and property managers within the project area to complete the online survey before February 6, 2023. Contact us to request a printed copy of the survey.
The City will be organizing public drop-in events in 2023 to provide opportunities to learn more about the project and speak with members of the project team one-on-one. Public feedback, along with technical considerations and City policies and guidelines, will be considered in recommendations to be made by staff and City Council.
Since 2016, protected bikeways have been installed in phases along Bloor St. In 2016, the Bloor Bike Lanes were installed as a pilot project from Avenue Road to Shaw Street. Following an evaluation of the pilot project, City Council approved a permanent installation of the cycle tracks in 2017. In fall 2019, the City carried out consultation on the Bloor West Bikeway Extension from Shaw Street to Runnymede Avenue. Cycle tracks were installed on this segment of Bloor Street West in 2020 and 2021.
The current Cycling Network Near-Term Implementation Program was adopted for 2022-2024, which includes The Bloor St W Complete Street Extension. Consultation will involve two phases: phase one (in development) will run from the terminus of the existing bikeway at Runnymede Rd to Royal York Rd; and phase two (planned for later 2023/2024) will run from Royal York Rd to Six Points to connect to an existing bikeway in the Six Points redevelopment.
