Public art and streetscape improvements can be included in several different ways with this project. New public art and streetscape improvements could be located in the medians, integrated with the bridge design, in open space along Overlea Boulevard, or in partnership with schools.

In all options the Thorncliffe Park gateway feature would be preserved.

The City is looking to find ways to add public art and improve the streetscape during a later phase of the project.

StreetARToronto (StART) is a suite of innovative programs designed specifically for streets and public spaces. The project team is looking at different opportunities for StART projects on Overlea Boulevard.
