The City of Toronto is inviting residents to learn more and provide feedback on opportunities for cycling, pedestrian, motor vehicle operations, and road safety upgrades on Huntingwood Drive from Pharmacy Avenue to Kennedy Road. Road repairs and upgrades are planned on Huntingwood Drive to begin in 2023 due to the poor condition of the road. Opportunities for road reconstruction only happen every 50-100 years, and are a once in a lifetime opportunity to implement changes to improve safety and operations for people driving, taking transit, walking and cycling.

Decisions on the roadway changes will be made by considering public input, City policies and programs, and technical requirements.

Members of the public are encouraged to participate in the public event, review project materials and provide feedback.

Virtual Public Event

A Virtual Public Event was held on Wednesday, May 11, 2022, 6:00 to 8:00 p.m.

Project Materials

Next Steps

Public input along with policy guidelines and technical requirements will inform the final proposed design.  Following public consultation, the project would be scheduled for installation starting in 2023.

Huntingwood Drive from Pharmacy Avenue to Kennedy Road has planned road work. Bicycle lanes were added from Victoria Park Avenue to Brimley Road in 2020 and parking protected cycle tracks were completed in 2021.

In 2020, bicycle lanes were installed as part of ActiveTO, the City’s COVID response program, to provide safe and comfortable cycling connections to trails and greenspace for mental and physical wellbeing. In 2021, City Council made the ActiveTO bicycle lanes on Huntingwood Drive permanent. Since installing the bicycle lanes, cycling volumes have increased on the corridor and motor vehicle travel times have not been impacted. Parking was initially impacted, but changes were made in 2021 to the bicycle lane configuration to install new parking spaces and protection for people cycling.

Motor Vehicle and Pedestrian Features

This work provides an opportunity to make further improvements to the street. Proposed changes include:

  • Retaining all existing motor vehicle lanes and parking;
  • Replacing the driving surface with new asphalt;
  • Sidewalk widening, where feasible;
  • Pedestrian crossings improved and made accessible; and
  • Bus stops improved and made accessible.

Bikeway Options

There are three options to upgrade the existing bicycle lanes to create a safe and beautiful cycling route.

Option 1:

Pavement marking and separator upgrades only

Option 2:
Concrete buffered bicycle lanes
Option 3:
Green buffered bicycle lanes
The roadway would be much like today, but with enhanced pavement markings and separators. The roadway would be much like today, but the plastic flex posts would be replaced with poured in place concrete. The buffer between the bicycle lane and the motor vehicle lanes would be transformed into planting areas, while still maintaining access to all driveways.
