The City monitors and reports on its Complete Street projects in ways that are specific to each project context and users. Additionally, it takes time for people to adjust their travel habits to the changes along the Bloor Street West corridor.
For the Bloor West Complete Street Extension, and within the first year following the installation, the City will:
After the first year of installation, City staff will analyze the monitoring data; a monitoring and evaluation update will be posted to the project webpage when data analysis is complete.
The traffic study summarizes the vehicular traffic analysis; however, traffic studies are only one type of analysis that informs the design of Complete Street projects. Complete Street projects aim to balance the needs of different types of road users and to promote the safety of vulnerable road users, including people cycling and pedestrians.
In addition to vehicular traffic, other transportation modes are monitored in the traffic study. Monitoring data also includes information about the volume of pedestrians and people cycling.

The City of Toronto is planning for installation of Phase 1 of the Bloor Street West Complete Street Extension between Runnymede Road and Aberfoyle Crescent to begin the week of September 11, 2023 (previously scheduled for August 21, 2023).
The initial installation will take several weeks, and involve a reconfiguration of roadway space. Residents and businesses can expect new pavement markings, the addition of physically separated cycle tracks, and signage denoting adjusted parking and loading limits as well as a speed limit reduction to 40 km/h. Over the coming months, additional changes to traffic signals, traffic signal timing and sidewalk improvements are planned.
In winter 2023, public and stakeholder consultation on the Bloor Street West Complete Street Extension project began to introduce the project and identify the different priorities and needs of businesses, members of the public, and other key stakeholders. This round of consultation identified a contrast between community members who are highly supportive of a complete streets approach and the proposed cycling facilities, and community members who have concerns about traffic congestion impacts with the proposed changes.
The project team has reviewed comments and identified actionable comments that can be incorporated into design or operational changes for this project. The following document provides a summary of comments that have been incorporated and provides information on the changes from what has previously been presented.
Two public drop-in events were scheduled for this project. The same materials was available at both events. The Public Drop-In Events provided an opportunity to view the project information panels, speak with members of the project team one-on-one and provide feedback.

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.
