The City of Toronto is planning road reconstruction and safety improvements along Sammon Avenue from Woodycrest Avenue to Linsmore Crescent.

Planned infrastructure and safety improvements include:

  • Widening the sidewalks on the north side and replacing any damaged sidewalks on the south side along Sammon Avenue from Woodycrest Avenue to Donlands Avenue;
  • Widening the north and south sidewalks along Sammon Avenue from Donlands Avenue to Linsmore Crescent;
  • Reducing the curb radii at all corners to reduce turning speed and improve visibility;
  • Installing curb extensions at most intersections along Sammon Avenue to narrow pedestrian crossing distances and improve visibility;
  • Adding new decorative planting areas at the intersections of Sammon Avenue at Wiley Avenue, Leroy Avenue, Kimbourne Avenue and Linsmore Crescent;
  • Newly marked pedestrian crossings and accessibility upgrades at all intersections;
  • Making comprehensive safety and accessibility improvements.

The Vision Zero Road Safety Plan calls for engineering improvements where there are most needed to protect vulnerable users of our transportation system – people walking, children, seniors and people cycling.

This project is part of the Council-approved 2024 Capital Works Program to renew aging city roads and sidewalk for current and future needs.

The construction area, illustrated below is Sammon Avenue from Woodycrest Avenue to Linsmore Crescent.
