New street names confirmed!
Following extensive public engagement, three new street names were approved by Etobicoke York Community Council December 3, 2019 as part of the Six Points Interchange Reconfiguration.
Thank you to everyone who took part in helping to name the new streets!
- Adobigok Pathway: Adobigok (“Ah-Dobe-Eee-Gook”) means “where the alders grow” in Anishinaabemowin (Ojibwe). The Mississauga First Nation called Etobicoke Creek and the area around it “Adobigok”.
- Biindagen Trail: Biindagen (Been-Dih-Genn) means ‘enter’, ‘come in’ or ‘welcome’ in Anishinaabemowin (Ojibwe). This name was proposed as an encouraging phrase that welcomes residents to the new Etobicoke Centre.
- Jerry Howarth Drive: Jerry Howarth is a long-time Etobicoke resident and voice of the Toronto Blue Jays for 36 years, from 1982 to 2018. He was one of the first sports broadcasters to refuse to use team names that were offensive to Indigenous peoples, bringing the issue to the forefront in traditional media. Consent was given by the named party.
Six Points Interchange: Walk ‘Back to the Future’
Jane’s Walks encourage people to share stories about their neighbourhoods and use walking as a way to connect. An exciting transformation is taking place in Etobicoke Centre! Join City of Toronto designers Allison Reid and Kellie Spence for a guided walk through the emerging Six Points reconfiguration. Look back and learn about the local history and evolution of the “spaghetti junction.” See today where the bridges are demolished and experience firsthand the new roadway connections, sidewalks and streetscape designs. Look forward to the possibilities ahead and share in the vision
for future development, including the planned Etobicoke Civic Centre, community spaces, civic square and public parks. Don’t miss out on this unique opportunity to walk “back to the
future” in a vibrant new urban centre designed for pedestrians.
DETAILS: Friday May 3, 2019. Meet at 1pm in Six Points Park, 10 Viking Lane (short walk from Kipling Subway). The walk will last approximately 1 hour. Wear walking shoes and dress appropriately for the weather. Rain or shine. Please note that the walk will take place on walkways made available for the public, sidewalks that are narrow, and next to fast-moving vehicles. We ask that participants wear bright-coloured, safety-themed clothing.
The mandate of the Six Points Interchange Reconfiguration Construction Liaison Committee (CLC) is to provide community input and advice to City staff throughout the duration of construction work. The CLC is an advisory committee and not a formal commenting or decision-making body of the City of Toronto.
Throughout construction, membership in the CLC will reflect affected groups adjacent to construction locations including the following local interests:
- Business Improvement Area (BIA)
- Resident’s Associations
- Community Organizations
- Neighbouring Properties
- Ward Councillors
- City Staff: Project Manager, Field Ambassador, Senior Public Consultation Coordinator

Jane’s Walk, May 5, 2018
Untangling Spaghetti Junction, the last walk through the interchange: Jane’s Walks encourage people to share stories about their neighbourhoods and use walking as a way to connect. Walks take place in hundreds of cities around the world, and on this walk, participants “walked the unwalkable” together with Urban Designer Julie Bogdanowicz and City Staff as they shared information on Six Points past, present and future.
Community Artwork, 2017
On May 11, 2017, community members came together at a public event to learn about the Six Points Interchange Reconfiguration, future Kipling Mobility Hub, and proposed new Etobicoke Civic Centre. The event included creation of a collaborative community artwork that will be displayed during construction. The design was created in partnership with The PATCH Project, and artist Monica Wickeler, and included participation from community members and local organizations: Arts Etobicoke, Creative Village Studio, and the Village of Islington Business Improvement Area. The mural is comprised of 192 individual tiles, and is 6x8feet in total size. It illustrates a Complete Street that is safe, accessible, and provides healthy and active travel choices for everyone.The mural was exhibited at the Etobicoke Civic Centre in summer 2017, and in the community at the intersection of Kipling and Bloor over the fall/winter months.
