The Eglinton Connects Streetscape and Cycle Track Preliminary Design was initiated in late 2017.
The current scope of the project has two components:
This work is being coordinated with the Eglinton Crosstown station design and construction currently being delivered by Metrolinx.
This initiative follows the Eglinton Connects Urban Design Environmental Assessment Study, completed in 2012-13, and the Environmental Assessment Traffic Study, completed in 2014. These studies looked at building heights, densities, streetscaping and traffic lane configurations; as well as concepts for cycle tracks on Eglinton Ave. Toronto City Council approved the recommendations from the EA Study in 2014, and directed City staff to develop an interim design and implementation strategy.
Public consultation is an important part of this study. Consultation with local Business Improvement Areas (BIAs) took place in the spring and summer of 2018. Further stakeholder and public consultation will take place in the future. Information for all events will be posted to the website and emailed to the project mailing list.

Under the Public Transit Infrastructure Fund (PTIF) – Phase 1, the Government of Canada is investing up to $1.25 million for the Eglinton Connects Streetscape and Cycle Track project. The City of Toronto is matching this funding contribution.
