The City of Toronto is undertaking a Complete Street Feasibility Study for Victoria Park Avenue between Lawrence Avenue East and Gerrard Street East.

The study is applying an equity lens early in the study process to consider the needs and safety of all road users, including those walking, rolling, cycling, taking transit, and driving. Victoria Park Avenue was identified in the 2021 Cycling Network Plan Update, is a Pedestrian Safety Corridor in the Vision Zero Road Safety Plan, and is also a candidate route in the draft RapidTO Bus and Streetcar Priority plan.

These designations will inform the study approach and preliminary design options.

This study is reviewing Victoria Park Avenue between Gerrard Street East and Lawrence Avenue East.

  • Understand safety and mobility challenges and opportunities along the study corridor
  • Document existing conditions
  • Conduct preliminary key stakeholder engagement
  • Develop complete street conceptual design options informed by technical feasibility (including traffic modelling) and key stakeholder input
  • Prepare for next phases of work including public consultation, preliminary and detailed design, City Council approval and implementation

Stage 1 – 2022/2023: This stage is the feasibility study and is focused on understanding what complete street design options may be possible and desired in the near and long-term. This stage includes two phases of preliminary engagement with key local stakeholders.

Stage 2 – 2023/2024: This stage will be informed by Stage 1, and will include public consultation (phases to be determined). Public consultation and technical analysis will confirm the preferred complete street design option, which will then advance to detailed design. Implementation of the design is subject to City Council approval and capital infrastructure coordination.

The scope of Victoria Park Avenue Complete Street Feasibility Study covers Stage 1.

When Stage 2 (including public consultation) begins, this page will be updated with materials and ways to get involved.
