Steeles Avenue East between Midland Avenue and Brimley Road is scheduled for reconstruction in 2023. The roadwork provides an opportunity to review the street for changes to improve safety and operations for people driving, taking transit, walking and cycling. As part of the roadwork, the City of Toronto is proposing cycling, pedestrian, motor vehicle operations, and road safety improvements on Steeles Avenue East from Midland Avenue to McCowan Road. The proposed design maintains two lanes of motor vehicle travel at 50km/h and includes new cycle tracks, intersection improvements and tree plantings and green infrastructure. The new bikeway will increase opportunities to safely connect to key destinations, including Milliken District Park to the east and Metrolinx’s Stouffville GO Grade Separation project to the west.

The City of Toronto is proposing changes on Steeles Avenue East as part of the road resurfacing to fulfill the City’s commitment to the Vision Zero Road Safety Plan. The Plan’s goal is to eliminate traffic-related fatalities and serious injuries by making our roads safer for everyone, especially for seniors, school children, and people walking and cycling.
From 2010 to 2021 on Steeles Avenue East between Midland Avenue and McCowan Road, there was one person killed and there were seven people seriously injured along this corridor. All proposed changes are focused on reducing future collisions.
