The City of Toronto is implementing safety improvements on Cummer Avenue between Bayview Avenue and Leslie Street as part of a scheduled road reconstruction in 2021. These improvements include reducing roadway widths, lowering speed limits, improved pedestrian crossings and adding protected bicycle lanes (cycle tracks). As part of the road reconstruction, the City is replacing damaged sections of the road, curb, and sidewalk.
The City of Toronto consulted on this project in Winter 2020 and the project was approved at the Infrastructure and Environment Committee and City Council (IE20.13) in spring of 2021.
Please see the Construction Notice for more information.
A Virtual Public Meeting was held on Wednesday, December 9, 2020 from 7 p.m. – 8:30 p.m.
Read the final Public Consultation Report for more details on the event and the public feedback received and considered.

On Cummer Avenue between Bayview Avenue and Leslie Street, speed studies have shown that people are consistently driving above the posted speed limit. Speeding poses a risk to the safety of all road users. From 2015 to 2019, 231 vehicle collisions occurred on Cummer Avenue. Two of those collisions resulted in serious injury and one resulted in a fatality.
The City’s Vision Zero Road Safety Plan is focused on reducing traffic-related fatalities and serious injuries by making our roads safer for everyone, especially vulnerable road users such as seniors, school children, and people walking and cycling.
