The City of Toronto is planning a number of improvements to O’Connor Drive, from Glenwood Crescent to Bermondsey Road that help to address basement flooding, pedestrian safety and streetscape. Once complete, this project will improve conditions for people walking and driving and better manage traffic flow. This Council-approved work was identified through the O’Connor Drive Avenue Study, conducted in 2012.
